That makes absolutely no sense. So the ships are going to have more officers and on them just because they're flagships? So who's going to empty out the trash when the few enlisted personnel get tied up with other tasts?


It doesn't matter that it's the flagship, everyship, command, organization within the military has a ratio to follow for officers to enlisted (I.E. There are 21,307 Marine Corps Officers and 181,384 enlisted Marines - source 2011 Marine Corps almanac)


There's no easy way in, that's why they send Marines in. Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem. Ronald Reagan, President of the United States; 1985
