Oh I’m not trying to defend Navy officers here. I was enlisted in the CG on the big cutters. I was not impressed by those pompous careerist ticket-punchers. Strutting around till winds greater then 35 kts and seas over 15 feet and then call a CPO or a Warrant officer.
I’m referring to the level of discussion on this (and other navy) thread. This isn’t a high school pep rally. The Navy has 17 dead sailors to answer for.
