pciszek: The WindowLicker: We love to make fun of the Navy, but you will never hear me say bad things about any doc. (even if their solution to everything is to drink more water and change your socks.)They may have very good reasons for insisting that people do this.
Hack Patooey: Living in a submarine hygiene is a joke,you don't use shampoo and you don't use soap,
BillCo: I'm as patriotic as the next guy and probably more so than most of the Fark hippies, but I have to agree with the principal. Let this guy wear his uniform and the next thing you know, some jerk is going to want to wear a clown suit.
No Such Agency: DrPainMD:Why would he want to do that? The day I got out of the service all my uniforms went into the garbage where they belonged.I hope you kept the boots. I wore mine all winter for years, saved me a lot of money.SnarfVader:"boat smell."Combination of industrial detergent, marine paint, oil and 100 other people's BO? Just guessing here.
clkeagle: If going to the graduation ceremony is his goal, he should dress the same as his classmates.This sounds more like he wants to wear his blues to impress everyone./My AF blues are for military or personal functions like my wedding. I own a civilian suit for other occasions.
The DBS: Yes, he was a Devil Doc. He got out last year when he finished his deployment. He had some serious shiat go down during his stint with the Marines. They were in Helmand during the off season, so it wasn't as bad as some of their sister units, but they still lost two guys.
loser0: Typhoid: Interesting that he and his family don't get the concept of a UNIFORM that everyone is expected to wear at graduation.This, only without the preceding sentence.The cap & gown has a symbolic purpose. If you're making a special effort to attend the ceremony, participate in it properly.
Weaver95: We spend all that time and effort teaching kids to be mindless conformists, then expect them to be fully actualized adults once they graduate high school. We are a very strange society.
