I was a bad boy. :)

I once attended XO screening with "FTN" clearly visible on my work cap. :eek:

Yes. I was, shall we say, defiant. I did straighten up somewhat when I was told I could be put off ship in the Philippines to "make little ones out of big ones." It was a reference to the hard manual labor of busting rocks with a sledge hammer in a military prison. That prospect was unappealing.

My in-law smoked Marijuana and was kicked out the 82 Airborne. This was in the 80s.
