AFRICOM liberty just went, well.... could it get worse (outside Cape Town that is)? Ungh.
Two U.S. Navy sailors were found dead on Tuesday in their hotel room while on shore leave in the West African country of Ghana, the U.S. Navy said.

The cause of death was unknown and was being investigated by Ghanaian authorities in cooperation with U.S. Navy officials, the Navy said in a statement.

"Currently there is no suggestion of foul play," Lieutenant Patrick Foughty, a spokesman for the U.S. Navy Sixth Fleet, told Reuters by telephone from Naples, Italy.

The sailors, who were not identified, were stationed aboard the Fort McHenry, a 600-foot (185-metre) dock landing ship based in Little Creek, Virginia.
Sad day for the Navy and the Sailors family. No way for a Sailor to go. "No suggestions..."?
