However, a Navy official told USNI News on Wednesday both Ropp and Hillman were not vaccinated for COVID-19. Capt. Corby Ropp, 48, died on July 23 at Duke University Hospital in Durham, N.C., following complications from a COVID-19 infection, according to a statement from the Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery.
