    Its not you my friend.........

    as far as the modern Navy goes, No more Initiations when you make chief or when you croos the equator......Traditions over 100 years dumped by some Officer who has no clue what the CPO creed is or what its all about............

    We still have them, they're just modified to compensate for "hazing". Again, different, but not worse. Our Navy endures through it's changes.

    I have to disagree...Few old Chiefs would call it a hazing and considered it and honor.......a few malcontents complained about it.........Now Chief Clubs are going away (none at subase Bangor or PSNS) Next to my marriage and my 4 children being born the day I made chief was the proudest of my life.....The Navy is unique......No other service has a pay grade like CPO......Officers at the NSC Pearl Harbor where I was stationed when I put on the hat would never give me the time of day when I wore a dixie cup on my head.....It was a whole different ball game when I put "The Hat" on.

    well enough sea stories.

    NP-
    You seem to think only the navy spends long times away from the PX. We can go toe to toe over who slept in the snow more, rain more, heat more, got more than just a few rounds popped off at them. I spent months away from civilians, troops overseas now are as 24/7 as you ever were on a ship at sea with a lot more opportunity to make that sacrifice at anytime from a suicide bomber or roadside bomb, a year at a time. Get over yourself.

    Now funny you should mention wives, mine is a vet as well, hellova shot, cook, lover, and pretty sure no one is going to tell her she can't because she is a girl. She is a lot more apt to tell you to stand aside or get run over...

    Anywho my radically right winged friend, you are attempting to turn time back. Women are literally onboard to stay.

    Few modern Chiefs would either...

    Most of the major bases still have them.

    Next to my marriage and my 4 children being born the day I made chief was the proudest of my life.....The Navy is unique......No other service has a pay grade like CPO......Officers at the NSC Pearl Harbor where I was stationed when I put on the hat would never give me the time of day when I wore a dixie cup on my head.....It was a whole different ball game when I put "The Hat" on.
    Who gives a **** about what officers think?

    well enough sea stories.
    Never.

    Of course your dead wrong..............I know other branches of the services have separations from families
    but try over 90 straight days at sea then pull into Subic for 2 days and then back out to sea for another 90 where the only time you see a female is at a movie on the messdecks at night...........Come see me after you have done that.

    NP-
    again you think your service is unique. Many young soldiers put in 6 months in doing daily patrols over the same ground giving the bad guys every opportunity to plot and plan their demise, no booze, no females, always the chance a mortar or rocket will drop in... then they get two weeks back home to fly back and finish the year ToD.

    Senior NCO's come back with their units only to be reassigned to another unit gearing up to deploy in 3 month's time.

    NP- you are not all that unique. You maybe confusing hindsight for insight.
