GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. OPNAV N88 APPROVED THE NAVAL AVIATION ENTERPRISE (NAE) CARRIER READINESS TEAM (CRT) REQUEST TO REMOVE THE CAPTAIN’S GIG FROM ALL CV/CVNS. REMOVAL OF THE CAPTAIN’S GIG WILL REDUCE MAINTENANCE COSTS AND FREE UP VALUABLE HANGAR BAY SPACE.Hey, we are having BDU to hide from paint chips and those trying to find us overboard - we have E-6 and below wearing khaki - why not have the CO of a CVN wait in the liberty line like everyone else?
Pathetic. I weep for our Navy. "Enterprise" should only be used with USS in front of it. When do we start calling everyone "Comrade Captain?"
