Reality Check

The USS SAN JACINTO recently passed her INSURV inspection, so BZ to the crew.

Somehow* the CO’s Lessons Learned Message has been leaked to the press, which of course The Navy Hates Blueshirts Weekly Navy Times has published.

This leads to discussion over at the USNI Blog.

All challenges aside. Let’s ignore the fact that the issue isn’t really INSURV preps, but overall ship maintenance standards. Let’s ignore the idea that your ship should ALWAYS be ready for an inspection, not put off maintenance and repairs until it’s too late and you need to issue over 100 CASREPs to get ready.

That’s not really what annoyed me.

This little bullet chapped my hide.

SJA ADDED A 2 HOUR FOCUSED REPAIR PERIOD 1530-1730 AT I-90 AND WENT TO 3 SECTION DUTY AT I-30 IN A PHASED PLAN TO RAMP UP LEVEL OF EFFORT LEADING UP TO THE INSPECTION WITHOUT BREAKING THE CREW

Ohhhhhh, the work day had to extend to 1730 and you went to 3 section duty?

In the immortal words of the bard, TImberlake, cry me a river.

Welcome to the minimum standard for 688 in port operations.

* if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that there are no accidental leaks…

    Please correct to read minimum standard for 688, 637, 594, (cite hull number of first ship of preceding class back to 563 at least) in port.

    Nice to know some things never change.

    Yep and they did it all without getting sub pay.
    Seriously, I understand the raw deal of the fast attack crews with regards to in port liberty, expecially the nukes, but if you were in 3 or 4 section duty and a couple of the other boats were in port and starboard would you think that your boat shoudl also be on the “new” standard?

    I have been on both the boats (admittedly a long time ago) and the skimmers. Taking the crew from 4 or 5 (or whatever rotation they were in) can be a real morale buster for the crew.

    It sounds to me like the SJA Skipper knew they would have to do this but did it the best way he could by dedicating that afternoon window to repairs and maintenance and not let it be eaten up by daily chicken shit.

    For theater, most dance stuiods offer a class called Musical Theater. It’s basically mouthing words to your songs or even singing them, and a lot of acting in your dancing. They usually alternate between tap and jazz. To learn jazz, which is the main part of theatre, you need to have ballet training because jazz comes from ballet. If you were thinking of starting dance at a local studio, take the following classes (if they have them). Ballet, Jazz, Tap, and Musical Theater. Hope this helps!
