    Just to clarify, Navy Lodge is not barracks for sailors or any other form of quarters unless it is special circumstances. Navy Lodges are onbase hotels for military personnel and their families that are generally cheaper. The times they act as quarters is generally for temporary duty where there are some sort of special circumstances or it is a really shortterm assignment.

    And for retired personnel and their families--still is at Great Lakes.
    Spent many a fine evening with one or both parents at sick-call Navy lodging since 1974 up there.
    Commissary priviledges are still there for Mom but we rarely go anymore .

    Although FOX is stupid I've noticed this "Freedom from Religion" group poppiing up everywhere now.

    Who are these assholes? Religion was never inherently evil, only a few of its followers were (because every atheist is a saint...)

    Yeah, I know that's what happens.

    I just wonder why that became a thing. Why hotel rooms? I mean, wouldn't a person who feels the need to regularly crack open a bible while on the road...have one already? There's a crapload of hotel rooms in this country! That's a lot of bibles!

    Why indeed.... quite the mystery isn't it?
    Why are they permitted such a privilege?

    Yes. Pretty much someone has to only be able to get onbase and they can stay in a Navy Lodge. I can stay at a Navy Lodge as a reservist.
