Oh man, what would you do? Crippling the nuclear flag ship patrolling South China Sea or stop the spreading of the outbreak on board? It's worst than Kobayashi Maru....
His crew answered that question when he was leaving the ship.

Can anyone interpret the nametag on his jacket? Are those pilot's wings?

If you ask the opinion of the crew... Im sure they would have chosen a months leave in Manila... You cant alert the world via unsecured email.. or the National press that one 11th of the US carrier fleet is effectively out of service.. it creates a dangerous void in National/World Security.. what he did was wrong.. There is a chain of command and a secure network for communications of that nature.

Pretty sure those are pilot wings. Thought I saw a Hornet patch somewhere else as well. There are a few places now that make the embossed kind of name tag, but originally it was exclusive to the Tipsy Gypsy.
