It seems like this guy was fired for sexual harassment.
    I wasnt talking about the commander...I was talking sailors in general...the commander deserves whatever he gets for his lack of control

    You have never been on a carrier at sea have you? 6k people makes it actually more crowded than smaller ships.

    If you talk to any officer that is not a Mustang they will tell you that women serving on combatants ships is working fine and that is the politically correct thing to say and they are worried about their naval careers but off the record it a whole different ball game...........

    Trust me, floating city gives entirely the wrong impression. My second cruise we had 180 people in one berthing.

    Associated Press|


    NORFOLK, Va. - The commanding officer of a Florida-based warship was removed from the post during an overseas deployment after several female crew members alleged that he sexually harassed women aboard ship, a Navy report shows.
    Cmdr. Derick Armstrong was relieved of command in May, about six months after his promotion to the top job aboard the guided-missile destroyer USS The Sullivans. Of the 1,500 commanding officers in the Navy, 22 were removed from the job last year for various reasons

    Yeah, bring back the old days of rum, buggery and the lash. The Old Salt Navy:

    Understand something...those of us who spent time in the navy...we hate that song almost universally, and that "joke" is so old and tired we are ready to shoot people over it.
