The Navy doesn't promote officers for being good watchstanders and stewards of a ship's safe navigation. Jobs like these are considered a stepping stone to higher rank and seamanship is a job to be left behind as soon as possible. The cause is careerism where enlisted and officers get promoted faster by being on staffs, joint assignments, acting in flimsy madeup positions near to corridors of power.

The North Koreans must probably be launching their socks off at the antics of the US Navy. So much for the high tech, expensive ships, they're not much help if run by people who shouldnt be there in the first place. Its going to take a long time for the US to regain some form of Credibility World wide.

Is it really so difficult to look at that big green screen in front of you, at least once in every 30 seconds.

Oh and if you screwed up and a giant tanker is bound to hit you, could you please press the big red button, you know it’s kinda a courtesy thing for your buddies who are sleeping and have entrusted their lives to you.
