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.

Also, a check of Google Earth shows only the Blue Angels' shield painted on the hangar roof (not the other explicit paintings as alleged in the article).
None of this is surprising. It is SOP for flag officers.
so what gay was offended the pilots liked women more?
This is today’s military (severe barf warning):
It was a woman who was offended. And she took down a really good man by all reports except this ONE.
This is the most disturbing thing I have ever watched, I was hoping it was a gag, staged....these are United States marines!!!!?? To an extent, I get the Islamic beheading vídeos, but I just don’t get this...our military has been completely pussified!!!! In my day these fags would have gotten the sh*t beaten out of them if they acted like this watching some girly kiddie cartoon!!!!! Wtf???!!
Doesn't say -- but apparently all this arose out of the filing of a single complaint in March. So a single complaint has the power to bring a warrior like him down.
As a side note, he was also president of the Tailhook Association.
pictures of squack and dirty jokes. BDD
Ha! They should have seen the Harbor Patrol electrical shop in Danang, RVN in 1968. It was wall to wall Playboy foldouts. I’d have loved getting a “career-ending” letter.
That God this wasn’t the norm in WWII or we’d all be speaking German now.
Thanks ... similar article, but there are better photos at the Daily Mail article :-)
I guarantee you the way this worked was somebody was screwing around and got caught, then tried to deflect blame by bringing up all this history. What the Navy did was take down an exceptional officer and pilot and get to discredit Naval Aviation again on charges that are totally blown out of proportion.
homophomic humor - (don’t make fun of the fags, it will hurt their feelings)
Well they are called cockpits aren’t they? (I am referring to the area of the plane where the pilot sits, of course)
The United States will never win another war again with these guys running it.
Once again we have to go to a foreign News source to find out facts about what is going on in this country. Kudos to The Daily Mail.
Severe barf warning is right. Please tell me all that was a setup.
He’ll land on his feet. Since the USA doesn’t want him, the Chinese and Russian navies need good consultants...
I have no idea. I have read it was a woman with a vendetta for who knows what reason. She waited more than a year to accuse Captain McWherter. People who were there and know her want to know why. It is a terrible thing.
