Skip to comments.A message to Mr. Romney from a Petty Officer in the US Navy
Posted on 09/22/2012 7:59:51 PM PDT by fwdude
Mr. Romney, I am a Sailor of the US Navy, and I am part of the 47% that will never vote for you.

Can anyone imagine what would happen if a Republican-supporting service member did this? Oh, wait.... I think we've already found out.
The way this sailor is wearing his “lid”, I doubt he is even in the Navy.
Mr. Sailor Boy, you are not a 47%er.
Regardless, it’s subject to verification since he signed his name.
You don’t wear your hat if you are in the Navy?
He’s not an officer, he’s a petty officer.
Petty officer is a non-commissioned officer, analogous to a Sergeant in the Army
When I worked at Lockheed, we had this one executive type who was a retired Army Colonel (ROTC at Rutgers) and he pushed hard to get people to vote for Al Gore in 2000. he guy was full of himself and when I wouldn’t pledge to vote for Gore, he got pissed off. He should have gone back to NJ.
I’d wager that “Petty Officer Millen” recently came out of the closet.
Called a “lid” or cover, back in the day.
Silly Sailor doesn’t he know they never count the military votes anyway-one less vote for Ovomit.
Are you educating me on things Navy or are you educating the general public?
Squid kid,. His brother gad a tumor removed because of Obamacare...ya right! I think this is a fake. If this loser is in the U.S. Navy...our Navy is sinking..fast.
It’s a shame that this is part of what we’re up against—idiot kids, even in uniform.
Idiot liberal PING
What with queers being accepted, navy was in the drink a long time ago.
The sailor’s rating is an Electrician’s Mate (EM).
Two things. One, this idiot says he pays taxes yet thinks he’s part of the 47% who don’t pay taxes.
And two, just today my wife said she doesn’t understand why anyone would join the military today.
I spent 4 years in the Navy (3/67 - 12/70). During that period, it was rare to encounter a Leftist although there were plenty of free thinkers (I was a linguist) and lots of politics discussed in the barracks and in the bars. Mostly though, our thoughts and talk turned more toward skirts.
Another wiser person than me pointed out the probably fraud of this drone. Thanks for the education.
He’s stupid if he’s working for his gov’t check!
You have that right! Seen a few fags get thrown up a ladder a time or 2, oh ya...back down then ...repeat as necessary. So proud to be a Navy vet (from well over 30 years ago).
“You dont wear your hat if you are in the Navy?”
You don’t wear it indoors, never (regs). And your COVER never looks like that one; typically, it has a curve in the sides due to the way you store it.
When you sign on the line that is dotted, you agree to stay out of political BS until you are no longer part of the uniformed services.
Given that Obamacare has not yet kicked in, there is no way that his "brother" got an operation due to this program.
Finally, since Romney was governor of the State of MA, how in the world does he have anything to do with the auto industry in MI? I was born in TN. I now live in WI. I have zero impact on industry in TN. See how that works?
I truly hope this is a fake. If it is real, this Petty Officer needs to punished. You do NOT use your uniform as a prop for political speech.
Of course it is not acceptable in uniform. But if he is really in the Navy (doubtful now, according to fellow FReepers who would know,) I’m sure absolutely nothing will come down from this utterly lawless administration. Count on it.
How about Dixie Cup!!!!
Hmm, not sure if you can do that while in uniform. Poor guy. Obamacare saved his brother? Its barely in effect.
Exception ... Twelve o’clock report to the Captain (in port) by seaman of the watch. At least back in the day.
Wore on for ten years.
>”(I was a linguist) and lots of politics discussed in the barracks and in the bars. Mostly though, our thoughts and talk turned more toward skirts”<
I’ll bet you were a cunning linguist back then. #;^)
Actually, thst looks more like one of these muslim tops...
Crummy printer too.
Not buying it, uh, Sailor. I know a lot of military personnel who will be voting for Obama. It has nothing to do with the 47% misconception. They don’t like Republicans. Many of them don’t like their commanders who are voting Republican. All of them are brave enough not to blame it on the stupid “secret 47% video.”. You’re obviously part of the nitwit crowd that can’t stand on its own two feet without blaming videos. Do you really not get it about what Romney was saying? Man, how stupid can you get? Oh. Yeah. Thanks for your service.
“Exception ... Twelve oclock report to the Captain (in port) by seaman of the watch. At least back in the day.”
Thx, news to me. The only time I was on a boat was the ferry btwn San Diego and Coronado. I spent my time on C-121’s, P-3’s and A-3s. We wore flight suits or fatigues, typically with no cover at all (Danang).
Doesn’t pass the smell test.
This Guy is a plant, I was a NAVY Petty Officer and here are a few points:
1)A Navy Petty Officer or any first year recruit for that fact would not be making political speech in his/her uniform.
2)A Navy Petty Officer or first year recruit would know that you don’t wear your cover(Hat) indoors.
3)A Navy Petty Officer would not use the word Petty Officer informal as was always tough that my rate always came first such as ABH-3(my rank)or your last name first. The only time one address a person by formal ranks in the Navy Petty Officer ranks is if they are your superior and even Chief are called Chief, Senior Chief or Master Chief, with the Petty Officer usually left off.
I am a sailor “OF” the US Navy.......
Is that how they ‘talk’ these days?
That is like the emails one gets from a supposed Vet that has millions of (fill blank)’s money and wants to share with you.
I am a soldier in the Marines.
I am a SEAL of the Navy etc etc...
Of course a lot of todays sailors use bathroom for head, kitchen for galley, floor for deck etc etc etc...
Right on about Political speech in uniform...And explain to me how his brother got an Operation because of Obama Care?
Thought it wasn’t supposed to kick in till he was long gone...
The only reason I remember this is because of the fear I had as I walked down the side of the ship toward the wardroom in anticipation of this encounter, repeating over and over what I was supposed to say. All I really remember was that I should not remove my lid contrary to all I had been thought.
On top of that unless Boot Camp and Petty Officer School have changed that much since I wen through them both, all Navy Personal are warned about the Hatch Act and most XO’s warn their sailors about it in election years in the POD.
Petty Officer School
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
When did they start that?
Or are you referring to “A” School?
what a total bunch of bs...
obamacare hasn't even hit yet, just the taxes...you ain't seen nothing you little pipsqueak...
then again, you'll probably try to get your 20 in so you'll get your nice fat pension and health care paid for....its little dolts like you that have made a mess of our military....in it for the money and not for the service....
you're probably gay too...
Check the local OWS encampment to find the culprit.
All Newly promoted 3rd classes go through what is called Petty Officer School, it is a 5 day course offered by Commanders and run by the Chiefs and Senior P.O.’s when I was in during the 1990’s
“The only reason I remember this...”
Thanks, good story.
I remember seeing an aircraft carrier in Subic Bay, standing next to it and understanding how huge those things were...damn. The flight deck must of been a mile up.
Once we were departing Danang to go on patrol and flew over the New Jersey while it was lobbing shells into the southern part of North Vietnam. We were at 7K or so feet and it was a clear day. What an impressive sight!
TKS, long gone by then.....<:
We had to ‘wing it’ on our own.....
You try serving under Clinton Military as a NCO and you would need a school or two too, that and allot of Everclear at the end of the day!
Danang, monkey mountain, china beach ... found memories. All from ground level.
