And USS Kennedy. It is not a joke. Starting with the USS Bush, the Navy switched to a vacuum system, which has pipes that are too narrow, and does not have enough suction at high-demand times, requiring these periodic acid flushings to eliminate buildup. Unknown whether the system will now be installed on USS Enterprise or USS Doris Miller.
