  1. Jesus…leave it to the Navy to fuck up a good thing. I remember taking AWAY cracker jacks in favor of the CPO-looking dress blues for lower enlisted in the 70s. Then we had (of course) o pay to change them out. Now you are seeing the fruits of your PC-ness of putting women in the fleet with all the sexual assault. I had a friend who was the C.O. of a carrier. He said when he got back from deployment he ALWAYS had over 25% of the females pregnant & they got time off for the kid with NO replacements. It can ONLY get better, right?

  2. Im out of the service now but I really like the new look of the dress whites with the piping on the back. I was hoping they'd change the bland white ones we've had. The dress whites never felt the same compared to the dress blues due to the piping. I wish I had stayed in to see this happen while I was in. The zipper addition…..well….I never had a problem to desire something like that. Overall I like it.

  3. Someone help me out here. Somewhere during the video, this guy states that e-8 is the most difficult rank to make. Aren't Navy enlisted personal pay grades addressed as "rates" and officer's are "ranks"? Can someone explain this to me?
