Her Sea Service, Battle “E”, and Pistol don’t have medals with them.
The GWOT, GWOT:E, National Defense, and Humanitarian Service do.
Anyway, on the topic at hand:
We all saw this coming. I toured Freedom back in ~2011 or so when she first came to San Diego. They have no junior enlisted(nothing below an E-5), and the crew’s not trained or manned anywhere near what they need to actually do anything. They only ever stand 3-section watch rotations in a terrible rotation(back then, anyway), and 3-section duty when they’re the on-shift crew.
Oh, also they rotate crews every 3 months or so, or for deployments. No crew will ever spend more than 6 months a year onboard.
