CARRIER Controlled Chaos

The men and women of the USS Nimitz live beneath the runway of a major airport. They sleep on the roof of a nuclear power plant. It’s a perilous environment. Wednesday, June 25th 10 p.m. KUAT6 & KUAT-HD

Airmen inspect a Prowler on board the USS Nimitz.

The only bulwark against danger and chaos for the men and women aboard the USS NIMITZ is to bond with their units on board the ship. The “Shooters,” who launch the jets, have a “Circle of Trust”; the Ordies (ordnance personnel) pride themselves on being a “mafia”; the F-18 squadrons — the Black Aces, the Hoboes and the Marine Red Devils — are tight fraternities.
