Of all our services, it appears that the Navy is the most politically correct.

One would think they’d be trying to make up for Carter and McCain - a task which would take at least a millenia.

I don't know about the other services but today's Navy is as politically correct as any college campus. I tried my hand at college during the 1990s at the height of the PC era, enlisted a little later in life ten years ago and the environment is about the same.

Behavior that was sanctioned, if not encouraged 10-20 years ago will now get you a quick ticket home. My WWII vet, LCDR retired grandfather is probably rolling over in his grave to see what his beloved navy has become. Even the chiefs I know who have 18-20 under their belt can't believe the changes they've seen over their careers. As my current OIC put it, this is now the "make my day" navy as in "Go ahead. Just try something stupid!"

If you're a sailor who likes to get drunk in port and bang hookers, you'd better watch your back. They're not sweeping misbehavior under the rug like they used to. That's no joke.
