The fact that the carrier is in the shipyards has created a difficult environment, according to the sailors who spoke to Military.com.
Very harsh conditions for those detailed for maintenance during major refit. I am surprised that command allowed these conditions to continue. The sailors should have been given decent housing ashore and limitations of shifts and chances for recreation. This is not wart time. I doubt sailors had to endure conditions such as these even during WWII. And, budget constraints are no excuse. I feel bad for the junior officers too who had to supervise these sailors with limited resources.
