Ok I really need to piss and mone about something to make myself feel better. As some of you know, I'm in the Navy, I work on seahawks. I'm at a land based squdrin. Now for what pisses me off. We have known about the huricane since before monday, and we have 2 birds that have been down since before that. Does our command want to get those birds up-no, I've spent sunday through wensday sitting on my ass twitiling my thumbs being board. We were told yesterday that were getting a 4 day weekend, and today I got called in, and I get told that these birds are going to be up by monday. I have been at work for 12 hours and am still here. I am all about supporting the relife effort, but this is bullshit. :mad: They wont even let me go cause im not senyour enough. I HATE THIS dumb shit. Now were throughing one of the damn birds into phase, and need to get it back up by monday. I dont like sob stories, But i really need something to vent right now.




:gun:

update, i've been at work for over 14 hours now, and everyone just started cleaning up. When I get off I'm getting smashed.

I feel your pain. I use to be in VFA-136 in Oceana.... now I am on a MCM class ship. Squadrons are fucking amazing at last min screwing you over. Then again the surface Navy is good at the all round reaming you till you are bleeding and raw. So in the words of my first LPO CS1 (AW) Scruggs "Don't worry it will only get worse". He use to tell me that every day and guess what.....

ive had similar experiences at work aswell, although it was a few years back when i was a cashie, there are some dumb assed managers out there, i remember one time i went out to the back freezers to get some more supplies which we needed to cook as soon as possible, as soon as i walked into the freezer, the dumb bitch of a manager starts shouting my name, some bullshit about customers first, this got on my nerves, after about 4 atempts to get this product, with faliure due to manager, and her 'rules' i get a grilling FOR NOT COOKING THE PRODUCT and end up working out the back for the next two weeks because, i was wandering around when i was supposed to be working up the front, as you can see i had to vent something too, old grudges eh??

You fail at infantilization. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.

Navy pilots' unauthorized rescues

Associated Press


PENSACOLA, Fla. — Two Navy helicopter pilots were praised but then reminded of the importance of supply missions after delivering their cargo and then rescuing 110 hurricane victims in New Orleans instead of immediately returning to base, the military said today.

One of the pilots was temporarily assigned to a kennel, but that was not punishment, said Patrick Nichols, a civilian public affairs officer at Pensacola Naval Air Station.

"They were not reprimanded," Nichols said. "They were counseled."

Yeah this sounds familure. I dont think you can do anything "properly" in todays military.







Also I just got ordered to do a specal inspection on one of the birds that was sent down there. So now I have to explain to a kacki why this ins ain't done yet. How about some common sense. Hear come the dumb shit.

Ok I think it's time for an update.


The birds just got back. They came back ok, but the stories that came back weren't. On one flight, they spoted a father and son on a roof. They pulled them bolth in to the bird safely, but on the flight back the father died. There was nothing the flight surgen could do. Our guys did what they could, but some things can't be helped.
