And it just gets worse from here.  At one point in the seventies the Navy was so bad they had real problems getting some ships underway because enlisted guys were voting with their feet and bailing out left and right.  Material condition of some ships was abysmal because maintenance had been delayed our outright canceled.  Aircraft carriers were floating drug stores with anything you wanted readily available.  There were also very serious racial problems that let to near riots on some ships.  The Navy took serious steps to address those issues and conditions improved dramatically.  The drug problems led to "zero tolerance" for drugs and mandatory urinalysis for all hands.  The Navy did not become more permissive, or embrace marijuana culture, or racism because that would not solve the problems.

This political correctness is what is destroying out military from within.  You won't wee the results for a while yet, but eventually there will be a major crisis and the Navy will not be able to respond because there are not enough qualified crew to get the ship underway much less operate it once at sea.

To those who cannot exercise the discipline military life demands, just f off.  You're not wanted or needed.
