If she ever goes to sea maybe she'll trip and fall overboard.

MC you were likely around as I was during the Tail Hook "scandal." The catalyst and nemesis of the event was a friend of mines Div O, Lt Paula Co%$#@ and I can tell you for plain fact she was a real piece of work. I think that was the start of the downturn as it was very shortly afterwards that CPO initiation came under fire and it has been a snowball since. I am not a religious man but god help us.

You are not even allowed to use the phrase CPO "Initiation" ..... the new PC buzzword is "Transition" .

Just saw this video. A young, black E-4 Sailor, IN UNIFORM, getting up in a Cops face during a BLM rally.

If I were that POS's Chief I'd have that little shit scrubbing shitters from now to eternity ...... and then I'd be in trouble for being a grumpy, old, racist Chief.

I read that today. What a bunch of bull. Probably because ratings like corpsman and engineman aren't PC enough.

Initiation went out in like '03 or '04. When I went through it was Season of Pride. Lame ass name. They water it down more and more every year. Pretty soon they'll hand you a list of NKO courses and call you Chief.

I am so glad that I retired from the Army in 2009.
I am not sure this old soldier could adjust to the new military.

Just a tip though, for young soldiers. Chose your battles against the system carefully.
In a fight, it may influence the person coming to assist. Consciously or not.

Just sayin'

Seems like sound advice.

She's a Reservist. What are you gonna do, put her on active duty orders so she can go to restriction and have her pay docked? Best scenario you can hope for here is reduction in rank and a Big Chicken Dinner, though I doubt it will happen. A General Discharge or OTH is probably more likely. Expect the lawyers and ACLU to have a field day.
