    An altercation between two drunken groups (these things always seem to involve alcohol) @ 3 AM. Who started what is unclear right now. One of his sailor friends called me up (about 30 mins ago) that this kid who works for me was beaten up by "at least 10 guys". No one seems to remember which hospital he ended up in (and he had no ID. His wallet was found onscene). Now I am faced with the dreadful task of Googling and calling each and every hospital (and police station) in the area to track my sailor down.

    In the meantime I have a mind to crucify his friend tonight for not telling anyone about this ASA it happened. :mad:

    Moral of the story: When you're drunk, be quiet.
  2. you have sailors?
  3. i want sailors....
  4. That's what you get for letting your guys go "down range."

    Well, this is taking a turn for the worse. I found the guy and talked to his doctor too. He has extensive facial injuries around his orbital sockets and may go blind if not operated on. :(

    Why, yes they're my sailors. I am their mother away from home.

    Once they sign that line, their @$$ is mine.
  6. I'm the mother of a sailor. And a 16 year old boy.
  7. Hope things turn out ok for him.

    Please keep us informed. Alcohol and altercations are not usually a good thing.

    Sad, is it not. A few weeks ago, a player on the Seahawks was hospitalized after being assaulted with a street sign outside a night club. Fractured his skull and face. At this point, it is doubtful that he will ever play professional football again.

    I sent another one of my sailors to visit the one in the hospital. He is conscious but his face is very swollen. They were stomping on his head :eek: He is one tough cookie. He was in BUDS training to be a SEAL until he injured himself and had to drop out and ended up working for me.

    We were able to get a hold of his family in Texas. He was able to talk to his real mother. The Captain and the NCIS have been informed and will visit him tomorrow. I'll be there too. In the meantime, I've done all that I can do for him. :crying:

    I believe you. I watched a documentary on TV about that. You have to be in the ultimate physical, emotional, and mental condition to even attempt that training.

    Good luck to you and your sailors. My buddy was just stationed in Pearl Harbor.

    That's pretty rough...

    What'll happen to the "ten guys" mentioned above? Anybody know who they are?

    All the best for your injured sailor. I wish him a speedy and complete recovery. I also hope this altercation doesn't jeopardize his Naval career.

    Best regards,

    I really feel sorry for this guy.

    1) Because he had his head kicked in.

    2) He has to report to somebody like you.

    Using Google is a dreadful task? SUCK IT UP!

    And what the heck are you doing posting to a forum when you should be looking for this guy? If he is "your" sailor... as in, you have a position of authority and responsibility... you shouldn't be coming up here and whining to us when one of your men needs your help. (The world doesn't need "mothers" like you!)

    I hope your CO finds out that you were posting messages on unrelated forums instead of looking for this guy. Sounds like you shouldn't be in charge of a Liberty Boat.

    ^^ relax dude, you've been here a month.

    Change the attitude or leave.

    Would you attack him like that if he phoned a friend for moral support? That's basically what he did. It can't be easy for him at the moment. And yes, googling can be counted as a dreadful task in some circumstances.
  19. Wow dugz. Just wow.

    Just leave now. Don't even wait to change the attitude.

    As an NCO, I feel for ya. It's never easy when these kids get into trouble. Good luck with taking care of him.
