There is still a lot we do not know about how the destroyer USS Fitzgerald came to collide with a heavily-laden freighter in the waters off Japan in the middle of the night.We do not know whether the warship's radars were operating sufficiently. We do not know what decisions the men and women who were standing watch aboard the destroyer made -- or failed to make -- that could have averted the danger. We do not know what actions, if any, were taken by the crew of the freighter to either cause or avoid this tragedy. But this much we do know:First, we know the crew fought heroically to save their ship and the lives of their shipmates. .Behind the images we see, there is: a fiercely brave crew working together to staunch the flooding, to rescue their shipmates and to save their ship.
