    According to the Navy Times, a survey has revealed the "disastrous morale" of crewmembers serving aboard the USS Shiloh cruiser playing a key role in the ranks of the 7th Fleet's West Pacific Mission to deter Pyongyang.

    Floating Prison

    One sailor slammed the warship as a "floating prison" while another one "prays" the crew would never have to shoot down a North Korean missile as in that case "our ineffectiveness will really show."

    The cruiser is based in Japan.

    The surveys were conducted during the 26-month command of Capt. Adam M. Aycock who rotated out in late August.
