My Dad was kicked out of the Navy with a bad conduct discharge for throwing a drunken Lieutenant off the fantail of a destroyer.

Let's cut to the chase here: exactly what is there to do in Vladivostok except drink and wh.ore around?

Hopefully the same thing you did to him the night before.
 
2012-11-04 09:15:45 AM
That's why grog rations are a good idea.
 
2012-11-04 09:17:55 AM
Wow.

Exactly how drunk would you need to be to get fired for it in Russia? They must have broken a few world records that night.
 
2012-11-04 09:18:13 AM
Really? They got canned for being drunk on shore leave - in Russia?

Everyone knows you "shave his belly with a rusty razor, early in the morn'n". Or am I wrong?
 
2012-11-04 09:21:53 AM
Huh, just watched an episode of Miami Vice where the answer was "fark him, stab him, set him on fire."

No, first you put him in the long boat and you make him bale her. The list of traditional hang over cures doesn't come until a bit later.

The skipper of a U.S. Navy frigate and three officers were fired on Saturday after an investigation found they had engaged in drunken behavior and misconduct during a recent port visit in Russia, the Navy said

In other news: ice is cold, sunlight is bright.

dammit...now this is gonna be in my head all day.
 
2012-11-04 09:25:17 AM
The Navy Times reported it was the fleet's first mass firing stemming from a liberty port visit since March 2011.

The Navy just ain't what it used to be.

Dude. Glad to see you back! Didn't you leave to run a tavern somewhere in Eastern Europe?

As for Vladivostok, just exactly what went down to make them stand out and be noticed?

I notice a distinct lack of detail, so I'm guessing it goes beyond being drunk on shore leave.

Article is useless without pics of the hold, captain's daughter...

You can get "fired" from the Navy?
 
2012-11-04 09:30:22 AM
But.........
If we put him in the hold with captains daughter - and he is the captain?

Yeah, they had to do something really bad. And alcohol was just a factor. Not that I would know anything about alcohol being a factor in stupid behavior.
 
2012-11-04 09:35:11 AM
If you're in Russia, drinking is a must. You drink to stay warm, you drink to get drunk, you drink to make the babushkas look like they're young again, and most importantly you drink so forget you're actually in Russia in the first place.

FTA: Darlak, a 1990 Naval Academy graduate, took command of the Vandegrift in Singapore July.

Either July is a country, or Singapore is a period of time. I'm so confused...

2012-11-04 09:51:18 AM
Captain for barely two months... ouch.
 
2012-11-04 09:51:38 AM
Do you think they will let me live in Krasnoyarsk? I will marry a round Russian woman, and raise rabbits, and she will cook them for me.

One of the opening scenes of "Anything but Love" had Richard Lewis contemplating the meaning of that song and coming to an uncomfortable conclusion.

Darlak and the other three officers were being temporarily re-assigned to fleet operations San Diego "pending potential other administrative actions," she said.

What do they actually do while in fleet operations waiting for the retirement papers to go through? Are they warming a chair or doing real work?

Great - now I have that song stuck in my head.

My vacation plans for the holodays include travelling to Vladivostok, drinking a 20cl bottle of Vodak and drifting through the streets in a hires right-hand-drive Honda. Because of reasons.
 
2012-11-04 10:21:42 AM
I'd just like to point out that 'relieved of command' is not quite the same as 'fired' - fired implies you got the boot and are never allowed back, along with no more paychecks.

They'll be doing the shiat jobs that need to get done, but no one wants to do. I see them having to do lots of FLIPLs, Whatever the Navy's equivalent of the Army's USR is, being assigned as "Assistant S-whatever". All the stupid BS crap that you need an officer to do, but no officer really WANTS to do. There are tons of those jobs.

Reminds me of this...

1.bp.blogspot.com 

And this...

tos.trekcore.com

Scott: Well, Captain, er, the Klingons called you a... a... a tin-plated overbearing, swaggering dictator with delusions of godhood.
Capt. Kirk: Is that all?
Scott: No, sir. They also compared you with a Denebian slime devil.
Capt. Kirk: I see.
Scott: And then they said that you were...
Capt. Kirk: I get the picture, Scotty.
Scott: Yes, sir.
Capt. Kirk: And after they said all this, that's when you hit the Klingons.
Scott: No, sir.
Capt. Kirk: No?
Scott: No, er, I didn't. You told us to avoid trouble.
Capt. Kirk: Oh, yes.
Scott: Well, I didn't see that it was worth fighting about. After all, we're big enough to take a few insults, aren't we?
Capt. Kirk: What was it they said that started the fight?
Scott: They called the Enterprise a garbage scow! Sir.
Capt. Kirk: I see. And that's when you hit the Klingon?
Scott: Yes, sir.
Capt. Kirk: You hit the Klingons because they insulted the Enterprise, not because they...
Scott: Well, sir, this was a matter of pride!
Capt. Kirk: All right, Scotty. Dismissed. Oh, Scotty, you're restricted to quarters until further notice.
Scott: Yes, sir. Thank you, sir. That'll give me a chance to catch up on my technical journals.

Depends on the version. Some are shave his balls with a rusty razor. Also, it shouldn't be throw him in bed with the Captain's daughter but rather give him a taste of the Captain's daughter with "Captain's daughter" being slang for a cat-o-nine-tails.

The more you know about sea shanties, the less room you have left in your mind for actual useful information.

The captain's daughter is slang for a cat-o-ninetails. A cat-o-ninetails is a type of whipe; primarily used for corperal punishment on a ship.

So .... all this inclusive, new age psycho-babble jibber jabber "We Are The World" and marry our own kind rules of "Naval Engagement" and CUMJ has produced what?

"This is the first mass firing since March of 2011"

Well, golly. Nice to know our people out there are only going off the rails every once in a while.

The Navy, nor the Army Marines, AF or Coast Guard are not where social engineering has any place. Discipline, hard ass attitudes and competence have to rule the day. Tradition is for a reason.

My friend Walt sings it with both belly and balls. He also likes to make up his own lyrics depending on the crowd. I think he once sang "put him in a barrel for the rest of the sailors".
