So I married a sailor, I when the economy went down I was so glad my hubby had job security. Well at first we were upset that there are no more reenlistment bonuses, but whatever nothing we can do and at least he's got a job Well now I am seeing neighbors move due to basically I consider being kicked out. Reenlistment is refused, they say oh we let people reenlist at a differnt rate and rank. No they just don't let you reup. Then a friends hubby was refused to be allowed to take his first class exam. Now they're kicking out about 3k sailors, AE is the only one I know of because there is so many. Now they are kicking those out with things like dui's and other black marks on their record. Also kicking out those who don't show progress and don't get recommendations, on paper. Unfortunatly we fall into the later. My hubby does his job. But his last squadron didn't give him anything. In fact he was the ONLY second class whose EP got lowered to an MP. He does his job, and does it well. He doesn't kiss ass or play the politics like screw someone else over to advance. But this the majority of what I se getting promoted. Why?! Is ass kissing like a much needed skill in our military? I thought you know people doing their jobs would be more sufficient. Hell his now Chief was under my husband in rank 5 years ago. WTF is wrong with todays military, I'm pissed not only for my husband being crapped on but also the other hard working country loving men and women getting screwed as well. Oh and now our retirees, who already paid the price, appearantly military people are overpaid...Howso when over 50% of our paycheck is taken back by uncle sam!Answer Question
