And it is quite healthy for soldiers to make friendships with people within their units during that off-time (that really is just down time in the same place).
    I did it! Then again, I was a real soldier and not a ****ing POG.

    You talk like you got some trigger time, but we all know you don't. Unless you can come up with some primer, which I doubt very, very seriously that you can.
    I don't need any of that, just a simple understanding of human behavior, and emotions.

    You would be better off with some trigger time. It would make you far more credible.

    I'd bet that not a lot of the other soldiers in your unit did it. Some people don't want to make friendships within the military, that's fine for them. Most people are not like that. Most people can be a good soldier and still share their personal life.

    Because I have common sense. I know what the real world is like. It won't work.

    I find it strange that you would rather take away more freedom from our troops than allow some of our troops the simple freedom of serving without fear that their sexuality will get them discharged.

    No, I didn't mean that, but guys do joke in ways that are not always sensitive to everyone's feelings.

    But don't you think being nervous about being outed, and kicked out of the military is a bit too much to worry about for an 18 year old that is already doing a very stressful job?
    Probably, but that's what he signed up for.
