Quartermaster Ramon Sturdivant did not graduate from high school yet now he spends his days doing trigonometry and calculus as one of the navigators on board the USS Nimitz. Find out what tools they use to wander the oceans of the world and listen while Rox asks about UFO’s. This episode was filmed on the bridge, 9 levels above the flight deck. Keep in mind that the average age of sailors on board is 19. Yes, teenagers are the engine behind this 1000 foot aircraft carrier. It says a lot about the power of training, procedures, and accountability.
