The Navy on Tuesday identified two of three sailors assigned to the aircraft carrier George Washington who have died in the past 10 days, though few details have been released about what led to their deaths. Retail Services Specialist 3rd Class Mika’il Rayshawn Sharp was found dead at an off-base location in Hampton, Virginia, on April 9, near where the George Washington is undergoing its mid-life refueling and overhaul work, according to Naval Air Force Atlantic spokesman Cmdr. Robert Myers. The petty officer enlisted in June 2020 and put on his current rank March 28. George Washington was the sailor’s first assignment out of training.
A day later, Interior Communications Electrician 3rd Class Natasha Huffman was found dead at a separate off-base location in Hampton.
