Machinist’s Mate Fireman Apprentice Bryant L. Davis, 20, US Navy, died of a non combat death on November 7, 2001. Davis was supporting Operation Enduring Freedom aboard the aircraft carrier USS Kitty Hawk in the North Arabian Sea. The Department of Defense reported in the press release that Davis was declared deceased after falling overboard. Search and rescue efforts were conducted but after a couple of days were halted.

Now, his family and friends are searching for an explanation. The Pentagon has provided no details on how the accident occurred, they said. “I don’t know what happened to my baby,” said Helen Davis, his grandmother. “I’m looking for answers. I will not stop until I get an answer.” –Chicago Tribune
