Lindsay Cooper, USS Ronald Reagan crew member during 3/11 rescue operations in Japan: You could tell the entire command was concerned because they were trying to do everything possible that they could to take care of us. We couldn’t get any assistance from ships because ships weren’t allowed to come in the area that weren’t already exposed to radiation. No ports would let us in. Japan wouldn’t let us in because we had too much radiation. Guam wouldn’t let us in, Korea [too].

Cooper: It got to the point where the water’s contaminated, we’re going to have a lock down, we’re going to go on the opposite side of Japan and try and get away over there. As soon as we got there, our water was still contaminated. So it was just where ever we went, it was an ongoing issue with radiation. We were being chased, literally, by a death sentence.
