I can more than believe it's real and a tongue-in-cheek joke about a recent cultural phenomenon while trying to sound hip and cool for the purposes of recruiting.

It must be something in the water.

quote:

All told, the Justice Department has filed criminal charges against 32 defendants who worked for the Navy or Glenn Defense Marine Asia. But those represent only a fraction of the people swept up in the scandal.

Separately, the Justice Department has provided the Navy with dossiers on 550 people who had contact with Francis — including about 60 admirals — to determine whether they violated military law or ethics rules.

One must remember that enlisted recruiters are (or at least were, I've been retired 15 years) the used car salesmen of the military.

And we have forum topics about all the navy ships running into other ships. Perhaps they were playing Pokeman instead of sailing the ship....

There sure were a lot of light sentences given out. I did not see one DD in the lot.

Yeah, I'd think this is the most likely.

How does that work? Pokemon Go was about collecting Pokemons on land. As a sailor, you will spend most of your time at sea. What am I missing?

My grandkids tell me that you can get different characters in different countries. A sailor may spend a lot of time at sea, but the sailor will also make a lot of port visits.

I notice no admirals going to jail?




By the way, all cellphones have GPS on them.

Pokemon GO uses GPS to spy where you are.

No reason why I am mentioning this....
