Shocked!!1!!(3-2)!!1!

Shocked! Yes, shocked I am about the news that guys on overseas boondoggles, staying in fancy hotels, may have availed themselves of sampling the local culture. Such a thing has clearly never happened in the past! It's all Obama's fault! But as they say, it only takes one guy trying to wheedle out of paying the hooker to ruin a good deal for everyone else.
I honestly expected that the lid would be blown, so to speak, over the goings-on in WestPac liberty ports (not by Submariners, of course, but by other guys) during the McCain presidential run in 2008, but if I remember right a couple of stories that came out detailing some PI stories generated nothing more than a bored yawn. I think the American people as a whole understand that when guys go overseas some of them might get their freak on.
If you think I'm going to ask for comments from those who want to tell their favorite story about whoring on the government dime on a blog read by Submarine Wives, no way I'm going to do that. Of course, if you want to tell stories about what "Skimmers" and "Airdales" do, that's fine.

All hope is not lost.

Back in the day, I worked for six submarine commanding officers over the course of time. As it happened, most were good guys...two of them later became COMSUBPAC.

Of the six, I witnessed only one messing around while overseas (not one of the two later-CSPs). Interestingly, the philanderer was not a 'submariner's submariner', but was rather something of a NR stooge who was inordinately weak in both leadership & tactical skills.

AS regards Obama, all I can say is "sorry, Joel"...but it's always about the leadership. Always. The POTUS sets the tone...make no mistake...in any administration.

My only shock here is that the press actually reported what happened.

Having said all that, my condolences go out to the very real human beings and families that have been hurt and will be hurt by this. Focus on the love, folks. Whatever you choose to focus on grows...and love truly does conquer all.

"...whoring on the government dime."

Really? Can anyone name even one S/S agent who was on actually on duty at the time of his dalliance?

The lapse of Obama's male Secret Service detail to uphold the historical pride of their mission may have been engendered (and is unfortunately underreported, so far) by the same cultural dynamic foisted upon male submarine sailors -- a novation that subjects a once elite, all-male service infiltrated and demoralized by a physically inferior gender:

Any female Secret Service agent assigned to the president’s armed security detail would have to:
1) be large enough and run long enough and fast enough for her body to intercept some bullets intended for the president; 2) trustworthy enough to keep details of the itinerary to herself;
3) reliable enough to maintain 24-7 rigor regardless of typical female health cycles and yeast infections.

No female is young and vigorous enough to fit all of the above requirements.

Female S/S agents attending the president’s personal security detail may certainly be armed, but my pedestrian guess is that they probably perform administrative and logistics functions only. By the way, administrative functions are exactly what women currently assigned to submarines are assigned to perform.

The rate of females assigned to naval vessels being medically unfit to deploy is excessive well beyond their numbers. For surface vessels that has usually been manageable. For submarines, however, sacrificing stealthly deployments of national security significance for female health issues requiring at-sea medevacs (including any pregnancy onset) is quite another matter.

No one here is saying that Obama is directly responsible for the behavior of the SS. People, including me, are saying that the SS sole and direct job here is to protect the president, and that they both did a lousy job of that and showed substantial disrespect to his office.

What Obama IS responsible for is the glaring lack of respect that has now been shown very publicly to him.

You CAN'T ignore the obvious security problems with that. You COULD ignore the whoring, were it not done on government per diem expense (and it was).

Bottom line: the agents clearly had a give-a-shit, disrespectful attitude about the president and his security. Why? Ask yourself, and if you're capable of an honest answer, the truth is yours to behold

Oh brother! Of course it wasn't Obama's fault and nobody was dis'n him.

It was some guys on travel getting some pussy. Men having been doing it for thousands of years. Armies have traveled with their own brothels.

I have seen submariners (of all ranks, MYSELF INCLUDED) while in a port other than homeport doing the same things. Let's face it, unless you are a gay man or straight woman, everyone else on the planet is after that little hole between a womans legs. And for the others, when I was an MP in Subic, there where bars for the fags and for lesbians...everyone got what they needed and relieved pressure before heading back to sea. Ports have served Sailors for hundreds of years for the same purpose.

The Navy used to support hygiene clinic for the girls in PI, sometimes staffed and supplied by the United States governmet for the sole purpose of potecting Sailors so they can continue the mission of hunting commies.

I have had CO's bring girls onboard ships and submarines, officer, Chiefs, Sailors all the way down to the lowest seaman whoring in town, married or unmarried. There are also some who don't partake...more power to them.

This is nothing new to the year 2012. This is not the first time. This will not be the last time.

This will exist as long as that little hole between a women's leg remains one of the most powerful forces known to man (just look at CO's and COB's getting fired).

It happens and if you don't get a disease, offend your god, disappoint your grandma, get caught by your wife, girlfriend, boyfriend or whatever, it's great and pleasurable. If it shows up on CNN then TSSBP.

Anyway, stop the drama. It is what it is and always will be.

What I find most interesting is that the media has really jumped on this, during this administration. A Democrat administration. That is why I am surprised that the media has jumped on it.

I am not surprised that a bunch of guys, deployed, have um, met some young ladies and invited them to their rooms. Stuff happens.

I am a little surprised that these advance party folks stepped out, and one of them balked at paying the tab. That's what seems to have drawn the attention of folks.

So let me see if I understand this correctly.

If the "lame stream" media doesn't cover a story, it's because they're in the bag for Obama and they're hiding the story to protect him.

If they do cover the story, it's because they're helping distract from failed policies.

Despite prostitution being legal, people can still be forced/coerced into working as prostitutes, which is why DoD employees are specifically prohibited from participating in activities that support Trafficking in Persons.

"4. POLICY. It is DoD policy to:
a. Oppose prostitution, forced labor, and any related activities as described in section 3 that may contribute to the phenomenon of TIP as inherently harmful and dehumanizing. TIP is a violation of U.S. law and internationally recognized human rights, and is incompatible with DoD core values.
b. Deter activities of DoD Service members, civilian employees, indirect hires, contract personnel, and command-sponsored dependents that would facilitate or support TIP, domestically and overseas. This includes activities such as pandering, prostitution, and patronizing a prostitute even though such activities may be legal within a host nation country, but which are in violation of chapter 47 of title 10, U.S.C.

Entirely true. Occam's razor and all that. Any submariner who really thinks that this was a one time thing and only happened because these guys somehow hate the President are f-ing delusional. Recall, if you will, that these guys VOLUNTEER to be on his detail, and as volunteers, VOLUNTEER to take a bullet for him as needed. Get a grip folks. The retarded on this narrative got launched so far and so fast that it's currently somewhere in the Klingon Empire.

Also, they don't work directly for the president any more than I worked directly for the CNO when I was a first class. They work for their supervisor or agent in charge or whatever, who works for his supervisor, who eventually works for the secretary of the treasury. You guys will go to any extreme to construct any narrative to denigrate the President, no matter how tortured that narrative may be.

Or maybe you really do think that the man who has what is arguably the busiest job in the history of mankind personally supervises his entire security detail. If so, you're morons.

The Kings Bay Prostitution ring.... I have only heard about this by mouth but i heard that it was the "Tennessee Wives Club."

When the Men left, they would put a bottle of Tide detergent in their windows to show the men that their husband was out to sea. The ringleader was the XO or COs wife.

They got caught because they got smart and realized that they were up to something. These wives started driving cars that the family couldn't afford. The wife told the husband to not worry about it.

The boat left for sea with "everyone" on their sailing list but a few people were left on shore with NCIS to investigate. The results weren't good.

Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, it is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth.

It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never fails.

"For submarines, however, sacrificing stealthly deployments of national security significance for female health issues requiring at-sea medevacs (including any pregnancy onset) is quite another matter."

I dunno about that. We medevac'd a guy in the middle (really the middle) of the Pacific in the mid 80s. Aussie helicopter snatched the guy off the deck in the middle of the night and took him to an Aussie carrier and then to a US Carrier.

Doubtful women aren't going to be a bit more careful knowing how they'll be medevac'd off a boat.....

Pretty cool time to be the OOD, though.

The retired ANAV is the only one who gets it right.

The hole carried around by women has started wars, spread disease, given life, and is the most sought out single thing in the world.

These were men who, like men have been doing for thousands of years, did what comes natural between normal men and women.

Nothing more, nothing less, nothing sinister or earth shaking. No more than what happens everyday and every night all over the world.

What amazes me is how phony shocked the politicians are. It's like they have never heard of sex (with the exception of Bill Clinton, of course). This just proves how out of touch a politician is, regardless of party, with the everyday citizen.

Unfortunately, the military will take an extreme, reactionary approach to this. Standby for more stupid training!

SS is never off duty. Being in the Navy, I am never truly off duty either. I live my life so i can serve you idiots who don't have a moral compass.

The Secret Service has to be off-duty sometime. Civil Service/OPM rules apply here.

It's shocking that a trained medical professional might be called upon to perform the duties of a trained medical professional. I suppose the women will have the same choice all women do - suffer in silence or seek the available medical attention.

The real question is whether basic gyno issues will be added to IDC training (if it's not there already).

From The Day:

"The chief of the boat on the USS Annapolis has been relieved of his duties due to allegations of alcohol-related misconduct, according to the Navy.


Senior Chief Sonar Technician Gregory Cordray was relieved of his duties Thursday as the most senior enlisted sailor on the Annapolis by the commanding officer of the submarine, according to Submarine Group Two.


The alleged misconduct occurred while Cordray was on liberty overseas, or off-duty while in port, Group Two said. The investigation, which is being conducted by Submarine Development Squadron Twelve in Groton, is ongoing.


Annapolis (SSN 760) is currently deployed. Cordray has been temporarily assigned to the squadron.


Master Chief Electronics Technician Ed Durrua will temporarily assume the duties of the chief of the boat.


Cordray has been on the Annapolis since 2011 and has served in the Navy since 1988. Submarine Group Two could not immediately respond to questions."

Annapolis' official web page now has ETCM (SS) Ed Durrua listed as COB.

That was a quick webpage update. The link had Greg Cordray still listed as COB last night at 2040, and less than 24hrs later it was changed. Someone at CSG-2 is reading this blog...no way a minor page update happens on a Saturday except by direct order. I've frequently seen these pages be months out of date before because of planned turnovers. Very interesting!

According to reports, of 21 advance personnel, secret service and military, 21 had hookers.

A 100% participation rate in extracurricular activities never occurred on any ship or submarine I was stationed on. Makes me woder how they selected people for this advance group.

Was a Yes to "Hey, who wants to party?" a required answer to a screening question?

OK, so I was only a brownshoe JO and spent my time in outfits chasing Soviet subs around the Pacific in the '80's, but I want to add something. I too did partake of certain off-duty leisure activities overseas on deployments, such as has gotten the SS guys in trouble in Columbia. But here's my point: I would not have done it if it had not been condoned and encouraged by the squadron CO, XO and entire CPO component. Start to finish, I was participating in events and experiences that were either set up or exemplified by the chain of command. I happily/stupidly went along with it, of course, but in later years, after Tailhook and integration of females into the outfit, I was sure sorry that I'd done it. It was just dumb. I was lucky nothing bad happened, but it is nothing I'm proud of doing. I understand male urges and peer pressure and all that, but if the SS is anything like the Navy I was in, it is the chain of command that is responsible and accountable...and probably giving the cues, if not leading the way in such behavior.

And as one more going-away present for DD, here's something of a biblical mashup delivered by Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction:

'The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."
