Three years ago, the US Navy decided to take on the task of keeping a child alive by getting them back to the United States.
The idea was to have a crew of about 30 children on board a ship, but only three children were actually on board, and the ship was too big to safely house them.
The plan was to send the children to the mainland to reunite with their families.
The only problem was, the children had already gone missing.
“So, when I got the call that our mission was coming to an end, I was pretty sad.
I thought it was going to be an end of an era,” said John O’Donnell, a retired US Navy admiral and a member of the Navy’s Search and Rescue Wing.
O’Connor, who spent nearly 30 years in the Navy, was a member in 2003 of a search team tasked with finding the three missing children.
They searched through the sea off the coast of Florida and along the eastern coast of the US, until they eventually came across the USS Enterprise.
O.J. Anderson, the first child of the USS, was the last of the crew on board.
He was only three years old at the time, but O’Leary said the USS was the only ship on the ocean.
“She’s the only place where you can look back on it and say, ‘What happened?'”
Connor said that, as the search continued, he would sometimes wake up and see the bodies of the three children floating in the sea.
“The only way you can say that you saw them was that you could see them.
You couldn’t see them, but they were there.
And that was the most terrifying thing.”
The USS Enterprise, the most expensive ship in the US navy, was decommissioned in 2007 and is now in the National Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola, Florida.
It is the largest vessel in the world, but its crew members, who included O’J.
and John O. Anderson in 2003, died when it collided with a tanker off the California coast in 2010.
The ship is now being donated to the Naval Historical Center in Washington, D.C. But the USS has never been returned to the US because it is a US naval vessel.
“It was a tragedy, a tragedy that we’ve got to move on from, but at the same time, it’s kind of a great opportunity to keep the memory alive, to try to remember that our Navy is still out there, still out here,” O’Connell said.
“I know people that have lost children on the USS and it’s a very sad thing.
You can look at the pictures that people have posted on Facebook of them, and it doesn’t seem like it would ever happen again.”
O’ Connor’s story is not unique.
In 2008, another child of an American sailor died while being held hostage in an Indonesian hotel.
And the USS Nimitz is currently being held by the United Arab Emirates, which has refused to return the vessel to the crew.
But, O’Connors hopes the children’s story can inspire people to remember the sacrifices of the men and women in uniform.
“If it’s not going to make us better as human beings, I think it’s just going to hurt us more,” O.’
A child who has lost their parents has often been a “black hole of grief,” Ollie told the BBC.
The search for the three young sailors has brought a lot of attention to the human costs of war.
Ollies mother, Nancy O’Donovan, was killed in a 2009 car crash.
She was a nurse and a single mother, but she never stopped caring for her two young sons.
Nancy’s husband, Sean, died of heart failure.
Sean O’Donell said his mother had become a “very important role model to her children and to their parents.”
Olles father, John Oll, said he was saddened to see his wife gone.
“They’ve given me hope that I can do this to make a difference in the lives of people who are in pain,” OLLE said.
