    For the first time, I have a very personal complaint with my ship

    i'm on duty this weekend for the light off (getting ready to go underway soon) and on the in port emergency team that responds to any kind of fire or flooding....

    that said, i became very,very ill sat. afternoon; fever, nausea, runny nose, chills, etc etc

    the ship will not give me any medicine at all for 24 hours, because we have a new rule because supposedly people were faking illnesses to get medicine. so i suffer... okay i'm supposed to be a man, that's cool (not really, i'm still a boy), i'll deal.

    but we've had three fires in the last 12 or so hours. the first fire, i threw up in my firefighting ensemble with my mask on during the fire in the space where the fire was being fought.... yea, puke that you swallow back down tastes really good

    so i go to the folks in charge at the behest of my team leader and i get told (with puke all over my face, shirt and boots) that i'm too ill to continue and i need to go to my rack

    this i do... 3 or so hours later, "Fire, fire" and i've got some chief (e-7) coming to my rack, pulling me out of it, berating me for not being at the fire, and then freaking out when i puke all over him as soon as i got my bearings and realized i needed to hurl

    alright, so this fucker drags me to see the command duty officer and wants me put on report for assault.... again,i have puke all over my socks and my shirt from the 2nd time around... the CDO looks at me and tells me i've been drunk on duty and i'm gonna pay dearly for it.....

    an hour later, out in the freezing cold in the hangar bay, standing at attention in a t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops, smelling like puke and feeling like i've got SARS, finally my team leader shows up and explains to this CDO and chief what's wrong with me

    a couple hours later, security comes to my workcenter looking for me to take me to the brig for being drunk on duty and assaulting a chief... the ACDO (assistant command duty officer) filed the paperwork for me going to the brig a few minutes after i was cleared of the outrageous charges and sent back to my rack

    what the fuck is wrong with the leadership on this boat?

    LOL. This sounds like standard Navy fare to me! If it was my Chief not only would I get it for throwing up on him, but for having a soiled uniform too. I am surprised it got cleared up before you spent some time in the Brig!

    My oldest son did 6 in the Navy. He always says the leadership in the Navy is totally screwed up and after hearing MANY stories like yours, I have to agree.
