i think i'm going to be sick. just another mark in the book of why i hated the navy. too bad we couldn't have had submarines without the bullshit navy cover the admiral's ass mentality running the show. i'd still be on the boats. read about it here
. this is also why i tell kids that ask me about the navy to find something else to do with their life. the navy has absolutely no history of standing behind and supporting it's people. when we needed support in the submarine community, it came from the submariners, not the navy.
