If you want to know what the Navy is really like, watch PBS’s new documentary Carrier. The stories told are amazingly honest and dramatic. How this made it past the Navy’s bureaucracy so uncensored, we will probably never know. The entire series is available online for free (I love public media). Episode 3, Chapter 1 discusses nukes, in its own special way.
And for another take on Navy life, check out Hey Shipwreck. Watch up to (or start at) episode four, that’s where the show finds its rhythm and includes nukes.
