    I forgot one thing.

    I will never look at Spuddy's Sock Puppet Welcome in the same way again...
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    As a former member of the Armed services I have only one thing to say about this issue. Captain Owen Honors is a digrace. Under the UCMJ Article 133 he is guilty of conduct unbecoming and officer and he should be court martialed.

    The top 3 statements made by morons before they did something regretful. Amazing people continue to fall into this trap.

    "Let's Video Tape this"

    " Hey watch this"

    "I think that microphone is off"

    Apparently some official says the Captain will be relieved of command, as we expected.

    It's official. He's been relieved of duty.

    It's not that bad, but it's totally unprofessional for someone in a leadership position to put together a video like this -- and I guess it's one of many. It's one thing for an XO or a Captain or an Admiral to ignore something the guys put together. (Wink-wink-nod-nod) It's quite another to be the guy puttin' it together.

    And now he's the Captain. Not for long, I'm guessing.
    can't agree here. it would be unprofessional to ignore it as well as create it , and now i'm happy he's been relieved of his position. pos.

    I understand the decision and don't think it is a terrible one, but I do think it is an overreaction.

    I quite agree. As having served in the Army one of the XO's duties is to be in charge of troop morale. I think this may in hindsight been an inappropriate move on his part, I think it was an attempt to lighten up the mood. Always a risk, but having served under some pretty dry XO's, at least he tried.

    Some of the things we did where a whole lot worse than this, and no one cared. At least he was not having a showing of Barnyard Follies.

    I think the problem lies in that he was "the old man". COs are held to a higher standard. Things you can get away with as an XO or company grade officer you can't get away with as the boss. Or were all these vids made while he was still the XO?
