He'd made it to the rank of senior chief petty officer by , then was promoted to his present position and was getting ready to retire when the NCIS nabbed him for his minor role in the "Fat Leonard" bribery scandal, which has rocked the Navy for the past couple years.
At the time, he reportedly told her she had "sexy toes. Before long, the sarge sent a nude pix of himself laying on a bed which grossed the girl out. Along with what she called "weird messages," this caused her to go to her mother and local police were contacted.
Naval Academy is rocked by reports midshipmen have been selling cocaine and other illegal drugs on the hallowed grounds of the Annapolis campus. It was the first time such a thing had ever happened without upperclassmen being alerted first. That's how bad the situation is at Annapolis. One of the alleged cocaine sellers is a female super-achiever cadet who was at athletic practice when the NCIS and canines hit her living area.
She tried to escape, but was apprehended and brought in for questioning, according to midshipmen with knowledge of the incident. That's the program where sexual perverts and horny losers were lured to come to a certain locale looking for a romp in the hay. Instead, they were met by hidden cameras, a smiling Hansen and cops waiting outside to pounce on them and haul their ass to jail.
An Army recruiter in Utah found out the hard way recently that police stings are still being used to catch molesters like him. According to court papers, Staff Sgt.
Jason Livermore had gone on Craigslist looking for some action and thought he was going to have a hot sexual session with a mother and her 12 year old daughter. Actually, the duo was phony, the advertisement a fake, and six other suckers also got nabbed in the sting operation. It's good to have a story to write that has a happy ending.
An Army major general who's now been busted down one star, given a reprimand and forced to retire, proves not all flag officers can get away with utter stupidity, just most of them.
We won't miss him. Of all the dumb things to do to end a military career, the sycophantic former two-star he gushed to one and all how "great" his mentor - retired GEN and Army Chief of Staff Martin Dempsey - is. The idiot general thought he could carry on a "friendly" and "flirty" e-mail relationship that lasted four months with the wife of an enlisted man under his command. Once there was a time when the rank of "first sergeant" meant something. Apparently those days are over as far as one idiot colonel at the U.
Air Force Academy is concerned. Julian Stephens has got to be one of the most nauseating PC practitioners of all time. The USAF top-kick noticed a gradual deterioration of discipline when it comes to wearing of uniforms, haircuts etc. So he e-mailed the cadets and future Air Force officers that grooming standards needed to improve. What a crime to say that!
Ring the "political correctness" fire bell. Throw the first sergeant right under the bus. We don't know for sure if it was booze or drugs that caused a Navy executive officer to self-destruct his career on Okinawa, but we do know this - he found a unique way to end his Naval service. How he ended up in the condition he was found in is not exactly clear. But two other Navy personnel will long remember Grabbard's bizarre stunt. Ron, we didn't know you. But as a former Navy officer, if I had, I would have been impressed by the nearly 25 years of military service you gave our country - first in the U.
Army, and the rest mostly at sea. You worked hard to climb the enlisted ranks all the way to the top - command master chief E It must have been a living hell to know that all you had accomplished over these many years was in danger of being blown to pieces. In a politically-correct Navy where any "accusation" - no matter how shaky - is tantamount to conviction at court-martial and absolute ruin - you had to know the cruel fate that awaited you.
While we don't count "suicide" as the proper solution to anything, by taking your life by your own hand, you ensured your still loving family - they never deserted you during this travail - would receive DIC and your SGLI insurance. As an inmate at the DB, you wouldn't have that option. Like a ghostly finger pointing from the grave, charges that then-MG Barry McCaffrey ordered the slaughter of hundreds of Iraqi troops two days after a cease-fire ended the Gulf War in , just won't go away.
Bar-hopping in Bogota cost a Marine colonel his career. But at least he got to keep his pension and retire without loss of rank. Roger McDuffie and two other USMC fliers got themselves in big trouble down in Columbia when they decided to go out on the town and have a few drinks. At least one of them, it turned out, was spiked, and McDuffie, according to the NCIS report, was so zonked he was wandering around from bar to bar "like a zombie.
His two cronies were equally blitzed and ended up not only falling-down drunk, but were robbed of their cash and U. It was one of the most embarrassing incidents with U. When life knocks at the door, No one can wait. When death makes his arrest, We have to go.
A half-century has passed since the start of the Communist Tet Offensive in Vietnam. While many bad things that happened over these past 50 years have mercifully faded into the mists of time, there are some moments of sheer terror, of life-and-death situations staring you in the face, that you can still smell the cordite and feel your heart beating like a trip-hammer like it did that January 30 so long ago.
We shared the same birthday. Members of the Congress may also be resistant to terminating programmes bringing jobs to their states…. However, the fact that military expenditure is continuing to increase even as other areas are cut suggests a clear strategic choice: Some argue that high US military spending allows other nations to spend less. But this view seems to change the order of historical events:.
Past empires have throughout history have justified their position as being good for the world. The US is no exception. However, whether this global hegemony and stability actually means positive stability, peace and prosperity for the entire world or most of it is subjective.
That is, certainly the hegemony at the time, and its allies would benefit from the stability, relative peace and prosperity for themselves, but often ignored in this is whether the policies pursued for their advantages breeds contempt elsewhere. As the global peace index chart shown earlier reveals, massive military spending has not led to a much global peace. As noted in other parts of this site, unfortunately more powerful countries have also pursued policies that have contributed to more poverty, and at times even overthrown fledgling democracies in favor of dictatorships or more malleable democracies.
Osama Bin Laden, for example, was part of an enormous Islamic militancy encouraged and trained by the US to help fight the Soviet Union. Of course, these extremists are all too happy to take credit for fighting off the Soviets in Afghanistan, never acknowledging that it would have been impossible without their so-called great satan friend-turned-enemy! So the global good hegemon theory may help justify high spending and even stability for a number of other countries, but it does not necessarily apply to the whole world.
To be fair, this criticism can also be a bit simplistic especially if an empire finds itself against a competitor with similar ambitions, that risks polarizing the world, and answers are likely difficult to find. But even for the large US economy, the high military spending may not be sustainable in the long term.
Noting trends in military spending, SIPRI added that the massive increase in US military spending has been one of the factors contributing to the deterioration of the US economy since SIPRI continues that, In addition to its direct impact of high military expenditure, there are also indirect and more long-term effects.
Note, due to rounding, totals and percentages may not add up. Current military spending includes Pentagon budget, nuclear weapons and military-related programs throughout the budget. This is different to mandatory spending, the money that is spent in compliance with existing laws, such as social security benefits, medicare, paying the interest on the national debt and so on. For recent years here is how military, education and health budgets the top 3 have fared:.
For those hoping the world can decrease its military spending, SIPRI warns that while the invasion [of Iraq] may have served as warning to other states with weapons of mass destruction, it could have the reverse effect in that some states may see an increase in arsenals as the only way to prevent a forced regime change. In this new era, traditional military threats to the USA are fairly remote. All of their enemies, former enemies and even allies do not pose a military threat to the United States.
For a while now, critics of large military spending have pointed out that most likely forms of threat to the United States would be through terrorist actions, rather than conventional warfare, and that the spending is still geared towards Cold War-type scenarios and other such conventional confrontations. It goes to supporting U. Were this budget and the organization it finances called the Military Department, then attitudes might be quite different. Americans are willing to pay for defense, but they would probably be much less willing to spend billions of dollars if the money were labeled Foreign Military Operations.
And, of course, this will come from American tax payer money. Many studies and polls show that military spending is one of the last things on the minds of American people. But it is not just the U. In fact, as Jan Oberg argues , western militarism often overlaps with civilian functions affecting attitudes to militarism in general. As a result, when revelations come out that some Western militaries may have trained dictators and human rights violators, the justification given may be surprising, which we look at in the next page.

Or what to be careful of when he comes home to avoid problems with people at school? It would absolutelu kill me to see my best friend deal with people being dumb and not understanding of what all hes gone through, even just at basic because I know there is more to come in the future with AIT as a medic and deployments.
Hi my name is Lisa marie i am a fiance: We have known each other since elementry just never really knew we would end up together. The one thing i have learned about dating one is do not give up on him. You may feel like he doesnt care or he isnt paying attention to you but he is worrying about what he has to do and what he is giving up. When he is leaving away for maybe months or even years do not give up on him then. Resure yourself that he is coming back because when he says he will fight to come back home he means it.
When he goes away do not talk about anything negative because you do not want to put more on his shoulders. Army men work hard and see a lot of things the no man shouldnt see.
Send them letters and send them pictures trust me the are waiting for those everyday. If he doesnt write you back keep writting him because he will read yours but he may not have time to write you back. If he calls you it most likely will be a short call but just remember to say i love you and that you are very proud of him.
When you say that it just resures himself what he is fighting for. Also dont forget to tell your solider everyday you are with him that you love him because you never know when he may leave.
Remember if you are not planning on staying with him like forever dont bother dating him now. Military men deserve amazing womens. Liike I learned God gives the strongest women to the Soliders. This is where i belong behind him supporting my hero wherever he may go. I met him saturday, it was at a block party in New Hampshire. It took me all day to have the courage to speak to him. We then talked all night and realized we had so much in common.
He gave me his number and as I was getting ready to kiss him when the fireworks was still going, my friend dragged me away. I still regret not kissing him. The next day after getting a good morning text from him, I asked when he was going back to base, and he replied today.
I told him when i met him that, if I ever dated a soldier, I would be there til the end. I just want to make the person aware of the fact that these photos are being used in a scam. We started dating the beginning of our senior year, I was 16 he was I would love to go to his basic graduation at Fort Jackson!!!
Does anyone know anything about the graduations up there? Will it be very hard since we will both be in different branches…? How much are the tickets for the graduation? I would like to surprise him so is there any way to call and reserve a ticket? Does him being gone ever get easier? When will be the first time I hear from him? I hope he is okay and I am so proud of my soldier, my love!! I miss him so much! This really helps me a lot, and gives me some guidelines to live by. I suppose it comes naturally.
Thank you for the stories here, and I hope that I, too, will have a story once I have moved into the position of an army wife. I am a tertiary skul student doing BSC in accounting at da university. I am in love with a solder named Tebogo. Being a military gul friend is a great challenge,thou i spend most of da tym doing my skul work,it is not easy for me to spend time with my boyfriend because he is always engaged by his work by the tym when i m free.
I believe i can cope with this because from your stories,they gave me strength not to give up on this relationship. Finding this website, and reading some of these stories has been a great help to me.
My soldier and I started dating in September , I was a sophomore and he was a junior in college. When my soldiers senior year rolled around, he was given his first duty station: Almost 5, miles away from me.
Being stationed in Germany has been a dream of his since he was a little kid. We talked about getting married, and moving there together after I completed my undergrad; but I had the dream of becoming a Physical Therapist before I knew him. I spent the second half of his senior year, and most of my senior year terrified of Germany.
I was afraid that when he moved there he would forget about me. The eight months he spent in Georgia were good. I was able to visit him frequently, and he had time to call me every night before he went to sleep. Soon enough his PCS date was assigned to him: Not only was it Valentines Day, but it was also right in the middle of my final swim competition ever.
I knew I was going to be an emotional wreck. Knowing that I could go and see him before he left, and take him to the airport meant a lot to both of us. The last day of my swim meet was February 15th; as soon as it was over I bought my very first energy drink and I drove the eight hour drive to be with him for just a little bit before he left. Those few days we spent together were wonderful, so full of love and laughter.
February 18th came all too quickly. That morning I drove with him to the airport, and we sat together for almost two hours before his flight in a small cafe right outside the security gate…both of us crying our eyes out.
The look he had in his eyes on that day told me just how much I meant to him. In that moment, I knew he loved me with all his heart.
It takes a lot of love to really put your significant others dreams before your own. He has been in Germany for three months so far, and we have plans to see each other at Christmas time. His first couple weeks over there we would Skype for hours on end, but then he started getting into his work; and Germany has really kept him busy.
As of now, he only has time to talk on the weekends for maybe 20 minutes on Skype. While he is busy, I have been the opposite. When my swimming career ended, and he left the country two big parts of my life were gone in an instant. No matter where the Army takes him, or how long we are not able to be together I will wait. I will go to grad school, and get my degree. He will work hard, and enjoy life in Germany.
Then we can finally close this distance, and be together in days. I enjoy reading other people stories and thought that it was finally time to put ours out there. If you have any words of encouragement or positive advice, anything helps. Hello I have recently met an Army Ranger online and we are in the process of setting up our first meeting. He has been in the Army a few years and is starting his second year with the Rangers.
I work in college athletics so I understand what a busy and crazy schedule is. I have assured him it is fine and that I am very understanding when it comes to last minute plans and changes. I did long distance before 6 years and I understand what it is like to not see the other only saw him 4 times a year for the 6 years. I know I can make this work if we hit it off after we meet. I am looking at some advice on what to expect if we connect and hit it off. So far we have postponed actually meeting for 2 weeks due to his training and my schedule.
Hopefully the first date went well? Hello everyone, my soldier is currently in basic training. We first met in August of We got together a month later and have now been together for almost two years.
He was a senior and I was a junior in high school. We were at lunch and I saw one of my friends and went to talk to him. My boyfriend was with a different girl at the time of us meeting, and he was holding her hand.. Somehow later that day after school let out we were going to the parking lot and I noticed him walking beside me.. You said I was in you way? He said why do you ask? I said because you were holding that girls hand.. On the inside I was screaming yes!!!
I told my friends about what had happened all day long because I liked him instantly, he is the type to be an asshole on the outside, but he is the sweetest man I know on the inside.
I later saw him that night at a football game. I walked in and immediately got jealous because a girl was putting a scarf around him. Time went by, and I would give him rides home from school because he always walked. One day he kissed me before he got out. He was obviously very nervous because he hurried inside, but then texted me. Then he kissed me. Afterwards, I said so what does this mean?
He said what do you want it to mean? Does it mean we are together? And from then on we have been together! On our 1 year anniversary he gave me a promise ring. He has been in basic for about 3 weeks. We had talked about getting married multiple times before he left. In fact, he told me back in May that within a year I would have a different ring. In his letters, he talks about changing my ring as well. So I have a feeling he is going to propose when he gets back.
We plan on getting a place when he gets back from AIT. The first week of basic, was very hard for me. I have gotten a few calls from him, and written letters every day. I have gotten about 5 letters so far. It gets easier after a few weeks. You have your good days and your bad days. Just not with your soldier! It makes them worry and not focus on their duties. You need to encourage them, and stay positive in your letters. You can say the truth, that you have bad days. Although my advice is that is all you say.
He will understand that you suffer some days and respect that about you. If you are going through a hard time you can always talk to me girls. It does get easier being alone. I watch Army Wives on Netflix and that is where I let out the emotions. Be supportive of your soldier. Stay faithful to him because that is the one thing they worry about the most. Is there anything in the email that mentions unsubscribing from updates?
Hi everyone, loved reading your stories its nice when ppl share experiences as none if my friends get why i am doing this and i feel like i dont have a support network. He found out he was going to be going away again so 8 months passed and i said i wanted us to be less casual but still not official which we did.
Few months later he went away, it was only a 4 month tour this time but we didnt speak that often and i found it really hard. He had a really bad time and came back to a lot of stress, he has been back a few weeks and we have seen each other which as always is amazing: Iv said to him i want us to be official as he has found out he is going away AGAIN very soon no date as yet but he said to me he feels like now is not a good time as he is majorly depressed and unsure of what the next few months have instal for him.
I dont want to lose him as we have such an amazing thing but my friends are saying im wasting my time as if he wanted to be with me officially he wld. This is my first time being an army girlfriend. I always was afraid of dating, or even marrying a man in the military. My father is a marine, he has finished his service, but he will always be a marine.. I think some of you know how that goes haha.
My father suffers from severe ptsd who refuses help, like a lot of our vets, and prefers to self medicate with alcohol. I never thought I would fall in love with a man in the service. My boyfriend, Andrew, is army national guard. We started dating after his enlistment and basic. So I never had to deal with the deprived feelings of the distance yet.. We always had a long distance relationship. I dont know if this will be a blessing or a curse in the long run.
A majority of our relationship has been skype calls, phone calls, text messages, anything we can do to stay in contact. We are constantly in contact, and we spend most of our time when we are not at work, on skype. I work construction on a military base, and this is where I first met Andrew, when he was stationed there: He leaves in a few weeks. He is being deployed to Afghanistan, for 15 months. This is his first deployment. I know this will be hard, but I refuse to let him know that Ill be lost without him.
I cant show weakness, because I need him to be strong for what lies ahead. Even though we live miles apart, he has been such a big part of my everyday life. I started researching a little more, on how to be the best Army Girlfriend I can be.
Its reassuring to see people who are suffering similar dilemmas, but are still staying strong! I reassure my man everyday, how tremendously proud I am of him!!! Because I could not be prouder of him. He is the strongest man I have gotten the pleasure to know! As much as I am terrified, my love and pride for him bring me to the balance that is keeping me sane. I love the man Im with, and I wouldnt change a thing. My biggest fear is him not coming home to me again, but I force myself to put that out of my mind and stay positive.
My second biggest fear, is that he will come home like my father did. Im not afraid of what he treats me like if he comes back with ptsd, not with him. Im afraid of his pain and torment, that nothing I do can help. That Ill wake up to his screaming at night, and not be able to hold him and comfort him.
Imsges: military dating germany
About all that seems to be left is to pray. In Nordic history, the symbol certainly pre-dates Christianity, and much of the futhark or Old Norse alphabet was derived from Greek, the older sowilo symbols being very close to the Greek sigma.
