    6 times the legal limit in order to get into work. Wonder if his job is really that bad where one needs to be drunk in order to do it.

    What I'd like to see: Special court-martial. Confinement and reduction need to be in play for this one.

    That's the part I noticed as well... out past curfew so the knee jerk reaction was "I'm going to work!" Very drunk going to work... good call.

    Yeah, individual responsibility is not the point; WHERE WAS HIS WINGMAN?

    I think that all SNCO's on the base should have to be at the base commander's house in full service dress on Monday morning. That's the only way they'll learn. Guess some Chiefs need to be counseled about being good wingmen.

    edit: looks like me and Rizzo agree on something.

    Uuummm, yeah! I'm guessin' that you have had to stand in front of your "leadership" and explain why your Airman beat up a transvestite, knowing full well that you can't live every moment of your life with your subordinates and contemporarily have a life of your own (with SURPRISE, a wife and children that need you).

    I KNOW why Joe got a DUI - he fucked up. Why wasn't I there? I have a life, too, dickhead.

    He's a maintenance guy? I didn't think they had enough off time to even consider a drink?

    I just saw something on my Twitter feed:

    "USFJ revises military curfew ; E5 and below in Japan to remain under 12a.m.-5a.m. curfew indefinitely".

    Source is @eslavin_stripes if anyone wants to see it. No story on the S&S page yet.

    Wonderful timing I would say!!

    In my day I saw many who had lost a stripe for misbehavior, even Art15s, recover their career and get promoted over people of the same rank if they did not break any more rules. Basically it was good that they could recoup, but for those of us who did not get in trouble that was a sad thing to watch. I remember hearing many times, that maybe if we go out, screw up and get caught we'd get promoted faster. Never tried that, but that was a common thought in last century's AF.
