Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
There are times that they take blue water over the bow and onto the flight deck.
I remember escorting the Enterprise in a storm while on a destroyer. The big E announced that the foul weather forced them to close the bowling alley. Yea, we believed it.
Our Captain friend lost one of his flyer-sons to the Mediterranean in stuff like that. Godspeed.
Worked on the flight deck for several cruises and can testify it's the most dangerous environment I've ever been in. I've seen green water over the bow and experienced 2 collisions with other ships. In the North Atlantic I saw not only water over the bow, but a blizzard with snow accumulation on the flight deck. Nothing like an icy flight deck to make your day! My heart goes out to those who are out there now doing the necessary but dangerous job. And I know they are out there now since our carriers are ALWAYS out there and operating, 24/7/365 every year.
