Did you often wear your sailor uniform on liberty or civilian clothes?

Whenever allowed, which was nearly always, I wore my civvies while on liberty.

Seems like there would be a lot of haters in various places so the uniform might be asking for a fight.

I was just always more comfortable in jeans than crackerjacks.

I don't know. But just from what I've seen on a movie. Anyway, from being overseas I know the US military is massively resented - even though, like in Germany or Korea, it's defending things.

It wasn't like that when I was in, but I can understand that being the case now. We are viewed as war mongers, and the greatest threat to world peace by many, and understandably so. I'm not saying we are necessarily, I'm just saying I can understand why people in other nations think that.

This is the main reason I tried not to wear my uniform on liberty or leave. Too many envious people out there.
