Other than the groping, this has been standard practice in the military. It always made me feel uncomfortable hearing that stuff when I was in the Navy. I didn't occur much outside of boot camp. I am glad they are cracking down on this. Does the Sergeant deserve a year confinement and bad conduct discharge? I don't know, perhaps.

Hi, my brothers,

In the 50's, that was nothing new.

My, TI, used to come up to your face, and tell you what he would like to do to your mom & sister, I'll let you determine what he wanted to do.

He was waiting for a reaction from me. I would stand at attention & wouldn't, move a muscle or even flinch. He got pissed off because, i was probably the only one that he couldn't get to. If you made the slighest move, and as the old saying went, your ass was grass.

You see starting at the age of 8 I had always wished that my "mom" was dead. I had a sister 3 years younger than I, but i don't rememnber much about her.

Foul language, lumps & bruises, blanket parties, etc, was supposed to transform a boy into a man. Those things aren't tolerated in today's military.

I survived it, and went on to a 23 year career.

He, got what he deserved. In my opinion.

Heal well, my brothers, heal well.

Pete..Irishmoose.

The sad part is that a year in prison is what we have to consider a victory. Someone finally got punished for it.

The only difference between the jarheads and the rest of the services is that they are willing to be so open about it.
