BEQ Room From Hell!

CDR Salamander has lots of good stuff over the last couple days, including lots of photos of what has to be THE worst barracks inspection of all time. While the BEQ room is in Groton, and the good CDR postulates that it might be a sub Sailor who has the interesting "habits" revealed in the picture, I feel obliged to point out that there are lots on non-Sub Sailors on the base as well, especially among the more senior guys who would have a room of their own (as this guy hopefully did).

I most likely just don't want to believe it but...

I noticed a mini fridge we had full size fidges 10 years ago.

We were not allowed aquariums/pets but it is trivial as this room obviously has not been inspected in a while.

We had grey cinder block walls not drywall.

We had tile flooring not carpet. Nor was carpet allowed. (Trivial again see above)

We had metal or white oak furnature both of which looked as if they would survive just about anything.

I believe I did live at one time on another all the "fleet sailor" barracks there at the time. But many of the barracks I have never entered.

You should see some of the rehabed BEQ spaces we have put together in the last 5 years. They are very nice. Like efficiency appts. That is what is so out of control about this.

If there was a person needing open barracks..... I fact checked it. It's ligit.

Exactly why is this man not already an ex-sub sailor? Yes, there are leadership issues and an entire chain of command now has a public black eye.

As a taxpayer I am dismayed by the number of USNA and USMA graduates who leave the service so quickly these days. If we are getting upside down (top heavy) maybe its necessary, but I think taxpayers are being "gamed" at this point, and flow should be controlled at the source. Your opinion?
