Alleged travel fraud? Dumb, if true. Not worth losing a career over.
First good news I’ve seen today!
Lots of dumb going around.
I don’t understand people who are willing to throw their careers over small things, just to save a couple of bucks, but it happens all the time.
the concept of risk-reward was throw over a long time ago.
What, everyone knows these ladies were just trying to get extra money for their pills. LOL no do not do it, I know theirs are free.
Two weeks earlier the plant manager called a plant-wide meeting and told the employees he was cracking down on the petty theft, no exceptions...you will be fired.
This dummy gets caught stealing a stupid fan. He lost the best job he ever had, or likely ever will have.
Naval officers know better, and one suspects (if allegations are proven) that this could easily end up with loss of commission, and being shown the hatch (door).
FWIW, I'm not a supporter of women on subs, at least not before an extensive (and unbiased) trial period with a few test vessels. But the policy is not the Naval officers' fault, and absent apparent unfortunate conduct, I would wish them (and the entire crews) well.
To prevent duplication, please do not alter the published title.
Many years ago, I worked in a shipyard where some guys would slip paint brushes and small tools into their lunch boxes pants pockets and take the stolen objects home. Security warned all employees that theft would be punished with immediate termination. The next week, the guards began checking bags and lunch boxes at the exit gate, and several dozen workers were fired.

There are major differences between a hatch and a door.
Obozo sets a hell of an example, doesn’t he?
Steal some nickle and dime crap and get nailed for fraud.
Steal an entire COUNTRY and you’re not even required to show up for a court hearing.
I guess some ARE more equal than others.
Anything that kills this program in my opinion is good news in my opinion. Basically the only hope for the Navy is to see Santorum elected so the whole social experimentation effort can be eliminated and the service returned to the standards of the Reagan era. I’m sure you’ve already heard about the senior petty officer who was relieved for screwing the midshipman? Who honestly believe introducing sodomites or women on to boats will make them more combat effective.
