I wonder how that command structure works.
Of course the Captain (civilian or not) is the master of the ship. But, since there is a mix of civilian and Navy personnel, how does that work? Do the enlisted salute and come to attention when the civilian leadership is present? Do the civilian sailors submit to the authority (with a "Yes, Sir!) to the Naval officers? etc, etc, etc. What's the protocol? Does a civilian mariner that disagrees with an instruction from a CPO get away with telling him to shove something inanimate into his anal cavity?
