The people who filed this are unlikely to be "Navy Nucs" - folks who are very well trained to operate US Navy nuclear propulsion systems.
There are thousands of sailors on an aircraft carrier, some are cream of the crop... others, not so much. It used to be true in the Navy that people who were less than ideal sailors were sent to larger ships... And they don't get much larger than a carrier!
(My opinion only, but based on 8 years in the USN, as a Navy Nuc Submariner)

This is a sad comentary on the knowledge level of current navy nucs
and willingness of people to gain advantage from a very unfortunate
event. I am truely dissappointed in these 'sailors".
