The captains and ships companies are held responsible for those specific incidents. However, those are not the only incidents in the 7th Fleet. Back in January, 2017, the USS Antietam, an Aegis guided missile cruiser, grounded in Tokyo Bay. In May, 2017, the guided missile cruiser USS Lake Champlain collided with a South Korean fishing boat. Now these four incidents combined, seem to point to a problem that goes beyond just the ships' crews.
