This is why

When I first went into the military, one of the things I used to hear from the old timers were stories about how bad things were just a few years before. I heard about people using drugs right out in the open. I heard stories about how officers were afraid to enter certain areas of the ship without an escort. The post Vietnam military was a mess.

Now it’s worse. We have ships rusting away.

Want to know why? Shit like this:

If things kick off in Europe or Taiwan, our military is going to get its collective ass kicked.

So much Buggery on the High Seas they don’t have time for Ship maintenance nor Damage Control nor Navigation system training.

I am over all of this faggotry. I used to not care, you know- live and let live.
Except that they can’t “let live.” Instead, they have to shove it in everyone’s faces.
So, I am done being nice about it.

My main theory for the low point of military discipline, mid-70s to late 80s or so was the trend in the justice system of giving habitual low level offenders the choice between prison and enlistment. The result was that the services were overrun with petty criminals. They didn’t change their ways, instead they were supplied with victims and the perfect environment for continuing bad behavior. The UCMJ was overwhelmed.
