    Having said that, The two questions remain. Pretty please with sugar and honey ... answer them for me so that I might better understand your post.

    Having served on 6 ships I can say when I first joined the Navy in 1956 the food was not very good.....I was on a broken down WW2 destroyer called the USS Moale (DD693) and it was not built for the comfort of the crew.....We would usually run out of Milk and fresh fruit anf vegetables after about a week at sea...The ship did not have the space to store it........As the years passed they started building ship to include the comfort of the crew and the chow got much better........The last ship I was on I was a CPO and we had are own Chiefs mess and our own chow.........Try steak and Lobster once a week.........

    19 is adult and they can behave as an adult and not harass other people. The solution is simple. GROW UP

    Somewhere in there, the navy learned how to do unreps, so they did not have to store all that.

If that were the case we can close down Annapolis and have the kids running the ship!
    You have to understand this was 22 Coomanding Officers........I don't know how many women were among the 22........There should be zero Commanding Officers getting involved in this kind of nonsense.....We are not even taking about the crew here....

    You have to understand, this was 22 commanding officers who where relived, for some reason. Not 22 for sexual harassment.

I've worked in close quarters with attractive women for 16+ waking hours a day, and it's never once crossed my mind to sexually harass them. If you can't control yourself, then you can and should be fired. That goes for civilian and military jobs alike.
    In civilian jobs it usually 8 hours a day...In the Navy its 24/7 for for weeks and sometime months at a time......Huge difference..

    Since that works for sexual harrassment, does it also work for rape?


    ps. "Far out left wing"... I'm special, guys - see?

    NP, this might be complex...but if it is harassment, it is not "tangoing", it is one sides....
