Navy report has concluded there were sweeping failures by commanders, crew members and others that fueled the July 2020 arson fire that destroyed the USS Bonhomme Richard, calling the massive five-day blaze in San Diego preventable and unacceptable. 

While one sailor has been charged with setting the fire, the more than 400-page report, obtained by The Associated Press, lists three dozen officers and sailors whose failings either directly led to the ship's loss or contributed to it. The findings detailed widespread lapses in training, coordination, communication, fire preparedness, equipment maintenance and overall command and control.

This is hard to believe but yet here it is. What's going on with the surface Navy.

Three thoughts:
  Extended cruises
  Drugs
  Poor vetting of crew members

I'd also add very poor training. I read the report yesterday and it laid the blame on about 35 individuals. I couldn't believe how incompetent the higher ups were.
