Welcome one and all! If you’re like me, you (1) Fly P-3s for the US Navy, and (2) get overwhelmed with the amount of problems staring you in the face, quietly whispering, “fix me.” It took me less than a week in this community to recognize a community problem (hint – its VP-30). Over the past years I’ve been witness to the egregious malfeasances committed by the leaders of our community, and I’m tired of banging my head against a wall.
I want to ask each one of them when exactly was it that you stopped paying attention? Or which rank did you eclipse where the people below you covered up any problems from you? Were you yourself one of those self-serving a-holes? If so, are you proud of your lack of contribution?
Walk to any squadron to find numerous dejected people bitching about how this community fails again and again and again… While you’re there, find the nearest S-3 transition for your daily serving of bitterness.
So I’m starting this blog as an outlet for my anger and my criticism. It will be unfiltered. It will be funny. Hopefully it will be thought provoking. Hopefully it will change things for the better. So spread this around. Tell your friends. I promise that sometime, you will exclaim, “Yes! finally somebody said it!” If you’re one of those aforementioned leaders, pay attention. I guarantee you that my opinions are echoed across the fleet.
Is it too much to hope that maybe the messages contained herein have an immediate positive impact? Yeah, probably. But fuck it. I’m doing it anyway.
