Curious. Saw a documentary on the USNS Grasp which is MSC operated and it talked about how there is both MSC mariners and Active Duty Navy personnel onboard. Just wondering how they interact? Do the Navy crew report directly to the civillians who are running the boat, or do they work independantly?
I would imagine its weird being in the navy working on a navy vessel, but working for civillians. Is this normal on most MSC ships?
