The Navy's Drag Queen

This is a discussion on The Navy's Drag Queen within the Military Veterans forums, part of the General Discussion category; I've always wondered if the Navy didn't use folks for these duties that were already so inclined. https://www.navytimes.com/off-duty/m...harpy-daniels/...

    This why when submarines go out with a 120 men they come back with 60 couples.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    The part I don't get is that it isn't an all-male environment anymore. There are off-duty sailors in the background who definitely have the right parts.

    This leads me to believe that they're not there to watch a chick dance.

    I can understand an all-male crew turning out to watch Cher. I can understand them turning out to watch flown-in cheerleaders. If I squint really hard, hold my breath and remember my days Back In The Day, I can even understand them drafting a fellow (low-ranking male) sailor and telling him "you're the chick. Put this on and dance."

    I can, if I remember that they're sailors and not infantrymen, even go so far as to understand it becoming a tradition.

    But when you have a number of chicks available, some of whom appear to have fine looking curves, I'm not sure I understand choosing this dude.

    In the article I read on NBC News website the sailor in question admits he's been a prancing gay his whole life.
    And he's sooooo glad the Navy accepts his "orientation".

    From the Navy Times:

    "Within his first year in the Navy, Kelley was voted to be the president of Strike Fighter Squadron 115′s Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions, became the public affairs officer for the carrier Reagan’s Gay, Lesbian and Supporting Sailors association, was named VFA-115′s Blue Jacket of the Year and earned his first Navy-Marine Corps Achievement Medal, a Navy release said."

    For several minutes I have been trying to formulate a coherent, articulable string of thoughts. Seems I can't.

    All I can say is we are doomed; drink up.

    I wrote this several years ago for one of Barbara's colleagues:

    The Army uses soldiers. Soldiers attend Basic Training, under Drill Sergeants, and AIT. Drill Sergeants are not called DSs. Ever.

    The Marines use Marines. Marines are not soldiers. Marines attend Boot Camp, under Drill Instructors. Drill Instructor are called DIs. But you better know the DI you’re referring to as a DI pretty well, and you better be sure he won’t mind. Even if you outrank him. Perhaps especially if you outrank him.

    The Navy uses Sailors. Sailors attend Boot Camp, under Recruit Division Commanders, who can be called RDCs. Even to their faces. Go figure. It’s the Navy.

    The Air Force uses Airmen, and no one is certain that they’re trained at all.

    I've always been slightly suspicious of the Navy. And I like boats.

    I never doubted the training of any of the branches, and I've served in two of them.
    I was there for a friend's officer candidate graduation. I was brought to tears by the ceremony. It breaks my heart that the Navy has lost its military bearing to such an extent.
