It sounds like the naval officer on the USS Enterprise, who was in charge of making the ships safety and rules informational video for the crew, has spiced the generic material up a little too much. This once boring subject matter now has people really paying attention to it, as the Navy has it under investigation, according to Yahoo News.
The ships public service video has girls with girls in the shower and men with men in the shower, along with profanity, gay slurs, and images of men pretending to masturbate. This appears to have been done in a humorous way to bring some comedy into the picture.
Captain Owen Honors, the ships second ranking officer, is the man who allegedly put this video together and he appeared in the videos in 2006 and 2007, according to Yahoo News. The videos were shown throughout the ship on closed circuit Tvs. Captain Owen Honors was made the ships commander in May, according to the article on Yahoo News.
The videos were an attempt by Honors at getting the crews attention as it instructed them on ship board safety and rules, which that it did. The Navy does not like its depictions of what is thought to be humorous by the officer who made the video. Navy Commander Chris Sims gave a statement to the media saying “this was not acceptable then (when the videos were made) and it is not acceptable in today’s Navy.”
The Navy will continue with its investigation and it is most likely safe to say the videos are no longer used for passing on the mundane information that everyone must learn.
While Groton Connecticut is home port for big Naval ships such as the USS Annapolis, USS Hartford, USS Alexandria, and a dozen more, the USS Enterprise is based out of Norfolk Virginia, according to the US Navy home port list. Some of these ships resemble floating cities in their size and length.
