Full Title: "Ex-Blue Angels leader who did nothing to stop sexual remarks and porn in the workplace gets a 'career-ending' letter of reprimand".
A former Blue Angels commander tolerated inappropriate sexual comments and naked pictures in the cockpits of the team's planes during his time as its leader, the Navy said Tuesday. (snip) The Navy said his command had explicit pornography, including photos of naked women, in aircraft cockpits; the painting of giant male genitalia in blue and gold on the roof of the center point trailer at the Blue Angels' winter training facilities in El Centro; and sexually charged, raunchy, and homophobic humor on maps and itineraries.

I have flown over the El Centro base several times and I never saw St Peter.
Rogle's mom moved from Albuquerque to Phoenix to live near her sister. The son moved to Oklahoma with his mother (Rogel's estranged wife). Probably not a great thing, but the best under the circumstances since his mom was over 80 and in no shape to raise a teen.
The ONLY good side of all these ‘purges’ is that BO and company are removing the WARRIORS from the ranks as Leaders.
Which means, their expertise may be put to use by the ‘rifle behind every blade of grass’ crowd that a one time Japanese Admiral or General Officer referred to.
If ‘weaker’ women, ‘dumber’ minorities, queers, cross dressing don’t know what head to use people etal are going to be ‘OUR’ Protectors, we need to grow some more blades of grass.
Fixed it for ya........
since when are nude pictures pornographic....they are nudes and museums are full of them
I remember flying into a WV town (you know how they shave off the top of a hill and put a runway on it) on a regional jet. The pilot had to be a NavAir vet and was reliving trapping his Tomcat on the three wire. Cause he just stuck the landing - BAM - and we were down.
I quite enjoyed it.
We’re in the middle of a major war, and need every top notch pilot we can get. What about this guy?
1) Amazing quality pilot. Led the Blue Angels.
2) Accomplished on the very best technology.
3) Very highly skilled, a Top Gun worth a dozen or more enemy pilots.
4) Whoops. He looked at porn. Well, too bad. I guess we’ll just lose this war.
“I was in Wal-Mart and this really young Marine was behind me so I struck up a conversation. He was buying a bag of (Twizlers I think.) I noticed that was the only thing he had, a kids candy.”
He was really a nice kid. But given the uniform I was perhaps expecting beer and cigarettes. Nope...Twizlers. I took me by surprise and made me feel 100 years old by comparison.
Ah, I thought you may have had a problem with Twizlers or something.
Flare to land, squat to pee.
It’s easy to blame Obama and the liberals but ultimately this guy was torpedoed by a military bureaucracy of pogues. Dancers and prancers who will throw any of their own men under the bus to protect their careers. A Halsey would have told the critics to STFU and given the guy a promotion. Today’s “sensitive” admirals are a disaster.
Thank you for the update. That sounds like it worked out the best as it could have. That must have been very hard for them, but I am glad they were both able to resettle.
I always stand to pee, well, unless other bodily GI functions are in process - done from the sitting position, but pretty much stand.
No squatting involved.
I don’t consider “pin-ups” to be porn, but discrete displays of fantasy and the imagination.
It was alright to fantasize about the opposite sex and what every “man” was fighting for during WWII, so why is it suddenly pornographic and sexist now.
Pin-ups were around when I was a kid. Check out Bettie Page and Vargus Art. In the late sixties, pornography replaced pin-ups with raw sex, nothing left to the imagination. Airbrushed pictures of ugly women with pubic hair all over the place.
Heck, some still complain about Tinkerbell as being sexist and pornographic. How about Barbara Eden as Jeannie. Pretty tame as compared to what is found on the Internet today.
Everybody needs to lighten up. It’s pornography that leaves nothing to the imagination, not fantasy.
The problem was they guys fantasy was about chicks. Now if they had pics of naked dues in the cockpit, no problemo!
Wrong fantasy for the Obutthole regime.
I showed this to my Marine son when it was making the rounds on Facebook a few months ago. He laughed like crazy and explained it to me.
He said, as you did, that these are kids, 18 and 19 years old, horsing around. They would rather be watching what they consider to be a good movie, but they got sent this Disney thing for little girls. So they’re making he best of it: they’re having fun with it. Young guys can be pretty silly when they’re doing dangerous stuff all day and there is no booze or women they can blow off steam with.
My son can act like a love-struck doofus when confronted with a new bitchpup, his sister can immobilize him with tickles, and he will giggle and pretend to be scared when his old father (who is half his size) pretends to spank him. But under all that is a very serious warfighter. Don’t worry, our Marines are tough.
