    We had a guy who decided he didn't like the Navy so much he was going to get out any way he could, he found that the easiest way with no repercussions was to "be gay". He started the effeminate act, hanging out a little too long in the showers and going to the local gay bar. Unfortunately he took the act a little to far, the Navy released him, he decided he liked being gay and, last I heard, he's now a male escort in Mesa, Arizona. RIP Tom Manios, hope it was worth the effort (he goes by Tonia now).

    I was Navy myself. While there are a lot of slutty women in the Navy (I can only speak for Navy and the squadrons I was in). There are equally a lot of slutty men. I know when I was overseas on deployment a lot of married men would be the ones going off to find women at bars and other places and would brag about. Most of the slutty women would be single. It was rare (at least from my experience) to find the married women hoing around. If they did, they were more discreet about their doings.

Her parent's house was the second one on our Court so the mailboxes were close by.
    They don't kick women out now for being pregnant. In my Mother in Laws day (she is also a Navy Vet) they did. I forget when they changed the rule. Now it is the big stuff that gets you kicked out, drugs, DUI, etc. Being Gay or Pregnant, nope. Heck, when I was in when DADT was active. There were a lot of day people I served with. It was an open secret. As long as you showed up Monday morning intact and stayed out of trouble, they did not care, gay or straight.


    I don't have any cool stories. Just stupid stuff that most military members have seen throughout their career. People getting kicked out for DUI's, smoking pot, doing more hard core drugs or selling hard core drugs (cocaine, etc), or subordination, etc. I think a lot of stuff I've seen is more stupidity (like DUI or selling drugs) than trying to do it to get kicked out (which granted some I am sure did it in hopes to get kicked out). Which I never understood people who smoke pot lets say to get kicked out. I would think you would just suck it up for 4 yrs or whatever and just get out vs. getting a general or dishonorable discharge because you hated the military that much. But that is my viewpoint.

    Waiting in the chow line on the hangar deck on board the USS Saratoga.
    A sailor walks over to one of the elevators that was up.
    Takes off his boots, steps over the stanchion cable and does a swan dive into the Mediterranean Sea.
    Now they call man over board and general quarters.
    Mess deck shuts down.
    I didn’t get to eat.

    She was dishonorably discharged and both her and her Dad said it was because she got pregnant. Maybe she had sex with somebody (in the Navy) that she shouldn't have?? Sort of like a teacher having sex with their student.

    In one of the barracks we were staying in we had maid service. A buddy and I shared a room and after an already insane evening, in the morning there was a knock on our door. This young Filipino girl says “maid service” and opens the door. Her and her female co-worker come in and start cleaning. I’m in bed and after a few minutes the one girl stops and says “You good looking” “We ride you?” My buddy pulls his covers over his head and mumbles “Jesus Christ! I’m never going on orders with you again”



    And for the record my response was “Nah, I’m good”.

    In Istanbul we were hanging out with Turkish Frogmen and they were showing us around. We ended up in a bar, say it isn’t so, and I met this group of Turkish girls, that although they didn’t speak English, were really pretty cool. As the evening progressed, three of them told our translator they wanted to show me around the “city”. I was a hot mess by that point and translator wrote a note on a bar napkin for me to give to a taxi driver to get me back to the ship I was on that week.

    The women and I ended up going to some of the seediest places I’ve ever been too and any of you who know me can imagine how I’d stick out in a room full of Turkish people.

    When I got back on board the next day, someone (One of my platoon mates) had climbed the Embassy that night, stolen the Turkish flag, and hung it off the mast of the mine sweeper we were on.

    We ended up standing in front of the C.O. and I truthfully had no idea who’d done it. He wasn’t happy where I’d spent my evening but the quarterdeck log was my proof I hadn’t hung the flag.

    How I wasn’t murdered in Turkey is an absolute miracle.

    The person who got her pregnant was probably in her chain of command and someone wanted to push the issue and got her kicked out. On saying that, While I am not really sure if there is something written about COC stuff or Enlisted/Officer dating depending on what branch of service. Maybe there were other issues going on and she used the baby thing to state why is was kicked out as people who don't know any better will take it as face value in your friends situation. At least when I was in the Navy, it was an "unsaid" (again, not sure if there is anything really stating this), that officers/enlisted should not date or even jr./Sr. Enlist should date, even if they not in your COC. Maybe someone will correct me.

    About 20 years ago here at Pax, we had a lieutenant shoot the guy who was having an affair with his wife, in the neck, with a crossbow. He then cut up the guy and carried him a piece at a time to the landfill. This one just had a lot of interesting points;
    Lieutenants don't normally kill enlisted, that normally stays officer on officer, enlisted on enlisted.
    Crossbows aren't your normally a murder weapon.
    Lieutenant left a very detailed list of how to do it.
    Chopping a guy up takes some nerve, as I understand it it was while he was while he was still in the parking lot.

    This was in Wildwood.
