My understanding is, because of this incident, the military doesn't allow siblings to serve on the same combat vessel. One has to be shore base while the other serves out at sea, the reasoning. To leave one surviving member of the family to receive the dead. Its a tragic story of the consequences of military life. Eye opener for shore.

If that rings a bell, it should: This was one of the incidents that inspired Saving Private Ryan.
