"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.
