  •  My dad never spoke of vietnam (25+ / 0-)

    He rarely spoke of the navy.  I was a navy brat who knew little about the navy.

    But I did know this one thing.  My dad and all the guys that came over to our house... they HATED and I do mean HATED  McCain.  Called him reckless, useless piece of shit.

    My dad served mostly on an air craft carrier.  To this day, I still remember the red hot hate my dad and others felt for McCain.  

    Met up with my estranged father after my Mom dad, and he still had much to say about the piece of shit McCain.  He was glad I grew up to be a liberal.

      subordinates. I don't know how much truth there is to it, but from what I do know, from my own experience, is that he reminds me of some of the absolute wworse officers I came across. It's an aura troopies can pick up on.  ( although even the best of officers/commanders will have their detractors -- heard even l'il 'ole me  has a couple -- there seems to be a proponderance of testimony......)

       And it's an instinct that is rarely, if ever, wrong.

      As well, some hold him responsible for the fire that broke out on the USS Forrestal. I once worked with a Chief Petty Officer H ( I won't use his name here ) who was aboard her that day. It was nasty. I don't know if he did or not, but many have their opinions on this.

      it tastes like burning...
