"EM2 Ross died in August 1992,  we were on Westpac 92. MM2 Troy Martin found him hung from the door in the barracks (suicide).

The SSDI lists only one Brian Ross who died in 1992.

Brian W. Ross was born on April 8, 1968 and died November 30, 1992.

His Soc. Sec. number was issued in South Carolina, so that's probably one state he was raised in, if that helps identify him."

  • EM2(SS) Brian Ross passed away late in 1992 while we were on deployment. He was in Pearl Harbor at the time on augment and couldn't come back to the boat. He did end up hanging himself. The crew was notified of his death as we left Hong Kong on our way back home. We had a memorial for him in Pearl about a week before Christmas.

  • Although I did not know EM2 (SS) Brian Ross as well as others, I recall him being a very meticulous sailor who kept the logs well supplied for Engineering as the Logroom Yeoman. I recall standing watch with him in port, relieving him as SEO/SRO several times. He was reserved, and mostly kept to himself, it was sad to lose him to the rigors of life that brought him down, I was flabbergasted to hear what had happened while underway, and have shared his legacy with my family and friends about how real depression is, and how it can impact anyone, with little to no warning. I took over logroom yeoman when he passed away, and found it well kept and organized. Fair winds and following seas Brian.

    CAPITOL HILL – A competition for material between submarine construction and submarine maintenance is contributing to slowdowns in both, the Navy’s acquisition chief told USNI News today. The Navy has more submarine maintenance to conduct than its four public shipyards can accommodate. As a result, the service has been shifting maintenance availabilities of its older […]
