CLEVELAND, OH – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) offered his support to the family of Jacob Drake and the U.S. Navy following news today that Jacob is one of the missing sailors from the USS John S. McCain.

“Connie and I are thinking of Jacob’s family during this horrible time, and we join Ohioans in praying for Jacob’s well-being and safety. Servicemembers like Jacob represent the very best of our state, and I’m hopeful the divers searching for these brave sailors can find him and bring him home safely. My office and I offer our full support to the Navy as this search continues.”
