Yes. I was in the 5"/38 that the Marine Detachment was in charge of ( 5" mount farthest back on the starboard side). I knew a few of the guys that were killed, because they were part of the ship's self-defense force, that would check in at the marine guardshack from time to time. MarDet help move the bodies to a reffer on the 3rd deck behind turret 3 after the accident, then back to the flightdeck to be helo'd off at Roosevelt Roads the next day.
