Why would there be that many condoms on an all male sub?

There is a maintenance tool known as a radiological isolator whose internal buffer is a rubber tube. Xenonburnout should be familiar with it. Replacement tubes are in the navy supply system. When you order them, what you get is a Trojan brand unlubricated condom. We might have gone through a handful a decade, but they only came in bags of 100. By the time we would need one again, the leftovers from the last time one was ordered would be dry rotted. Therefore, there was often a large supply of unwanted, unused condoms collecting dust and taking up valuable storage space. In today's navy, perhaps they have another way of disposing of them?

Condoms not getting used in the Navy, figures.

Not that I was ever so bored as to verify that this information is actually true....
I only was on board a ship once, the S.S. Cape Inscription that a bunch of us took to Saudi as part of an amphibious detachment.

My favorite cheap thrill on board the ship was to start various rumors and see how long it took for them to get back to me. I especially was pleased when they took on a life of their own.

The whole story is...odd. Reading the article, it appears former SGT Skipper was the JM that inspected the bundles. A JM would know that an investigation would occur if three rigged airdrop pallets frapped in. Odd...

I don't know why they would, there isn't a psych eval requirement for his position. Courts martial generally take a dim view of the defense trying to introduce psychiatric issues as a mitigating factor.

Sure. By the book, and all of that.

But I'm really tired of seeing enlisted soldiers taking the full brunt of punishment while officers get off lightly.
