The article presents information on the author's views on a paper published in a previous issue of the journal. After the Stark incident, as the U.S. Navy's involvement in Operation Earnest Will (escorting flagged oil tankers in the Persian Gulf) escalated, lessons learned were promulgated fleet-wide by way of naval message to enhance damage control and survivability. These included expanded allowances of oxygen-breathing apparatus canisters, application of ladder-tread non-skid patches to emergency-escape-breathing-device plastic containers, procurement of exothermic scanners for imaging through smoke and more.
