gently caress you guys. It is the second year of the 20's. We still don't have money for anything that matters but hey its not so bad, literally nothing has changed. We have some guys that have gotten themselves promoted. We have some guys that are about too, as well as some people who's souls have finally been crushed by the unfeeling uncaring machine that is government work. All in all its been a pretty meh year. Covid sucks but there is now light at the end of the tunnel. Our abusive orange leader keeps loving with Ice breaker poo poo. OPC's are around the corner and some of us will probably be cursed to be aboard them. The 29's are a bane to the entire fleet. 225's are breaking left and right but sythaglass is cheap. We have stations literally falling into the water with no plan in site and our new uniforms are hideous . But all in all we are doing great because at the end of the day at least we aren't DOD

Who knows. All my shop but one is currently getting out cause poo poo ain't worth it and I convinced them education is the better alternative. Like 70% of the boat is openly discussing it...shits nuts

What’s the main reason people are getting out? Are they mostly people on first enlistments?

My only exposure right now is to the honor guard and they all just want to avoid underway and go ME.

I mean there is a plethora of reasons and I'm waiting for the fam to wake up so we can move so I'll list them as applicable to the boat I was on.

New GI bill and retirement shenanigans. That and the recent bunch of Os (last 5 years or so) coming out of the academy are loving dumb. We have more non rates joining with degrees and life experience then ever before so when you listen to ensign idiot tell you to do something only to get yelled at by bm1/c for doing what dumb rear end said then the next day get threatened with njp for not doing what the dumb rear end says it kind of makes you want to get out.

Toxic as gently caress CO who is a jerk to anyone who is even half way decent looking(this is most definitely not me ask crabdad) while screeching about the patriarchy keeping her from getting the job she wanted(another female got it). Also she is probably the most unsafe CO I have ever worked for, last underway she almost got the MK2 breaking in killed by launching a boat in max seas with a Jr. Driver and this being the first boat launch that 7/8 of deck force had ever done.

Badge Chief getting threatened for NJP by big CG for having a pre existing relationship with another Chief who picked up warrant.(apparently there is no written policy allowing it I don't know I'm not touching the poop)

XO is a money hoarder and doesn't approve PRs for needed stuff making everything way harder then it needs to be.

Unit being perpetually broke with the CG half rear end fixing it just to rush the boat out of dry dock to work bouys. When 1 and two tour guys see the CG overall lack of give a poo poo about quality repairs it makes you wonder how much your life is worth.

Basically the Willow is a train wreck with the only saving grace being they are gettinga new CO in june. I'm glad I'm transferring out.

Over all CG wide I think people are realizing the military is dumb and it's getting more and more difficult to convince people that 20 years is worth it. Most of the people now that are doing more then 10 are doing it cause they feel trapped. Toss out a 10 year retirement with no health care but 25% pay and we would really watch the floodgates open.

Just lol at relying on a YN2/yn3 combo to take care of anything for you.

Keep on their rear end about it.

Yeah it's a coin flip. YN2 on the Willow was amazing other places its been more misses then hits.

The CG has vastly underestimated the power of social media to broadcast problems and has been turning a blind eye to toxic commands for decades. Honestly I'm surprised this hasn't happened earlier.

My jobs mostly dealing with civilians and a handful of officers remotely nowadays-is the fleet that full of assholes not wanting to get the vaccine?

Not really. It's a small but amazingly loud percentage. One of the guys gas a legit medical concern and a long documented history. The other guys....I honestly can't think of a good example to pair it to that you guys would believe wasn't exaggerated. Shits nuts and honestly there may just end up being booking chits over the behavior.

There are so many openings for VTS Staten island and other good picks... for OS2.
I mean there are also good places for OS1, but I am not in the cuttoff and who knows if I actually score high enough in the NOV21 SWE...

Well if you do get NY and want to come check out some castles or just chill in upstate your welcome to come hang out.
