    I guess you think your freedom was secured by criminals.

    A proud dad pic is not political.

    you are a moron.

    please note that I never said anything political. I just said ''killing'' people is wrong. I did not talk about any political party or policies. You guys just assumed.

    good job guys!

    How come the Navy and Airforce get all the cute girls....

    But congrats, I can tell you are proud. Whether or not it's a good photo, it's still a very special moment in the life of a service member, and one that will always be remembered.

    Your comments in this thread are out of line. Your editorializing was negative, inflammatory and completely uncalled for. This type of image, "snapshot" quality or not, falls into casual portraiture or, to stretch, photojournalism - and neither genre is overtly trying to make political statements. You are the one who assumed a lot here. :thumbdown:

    scubabear6 - You daughter looks proud and dignified in her uniform. No doubt she worked very hard to earn the right to wear it. Best of luck to her in her new assignment!

    He is going into the IT field. He considered the Nuclear field, the sign-on bounus for the Nuclear field was very tempting for him. He has been at Great Lakes for a week now. How long before they can write home?

    Be sure to thank your daughter for her service and ignore the disrespect in this thread.

    I think it was about 2 weeks. 1st week is whst they call p week (processing) They are only allowed to write on sundays (though alot write in there bunks at night) My daughter was going IT before nukes herself. Good luck to him I'm always proud of the young men and women who serve.

    Sorry. Your anti-military, pacifistic stance is absolutely political.

    Further, crapping on a proud dad's thread and implicitly stating that his daughter is a criminal is absolutely inflammatory.

    Nice try at rationalizing. A better approach might have been to simply apologize for crossing a line that is clearly delineated in the FAQ and then leave it alone.

    Thank you for your service.
    As for why the Navy and Airforce get more women I think is the working envirorment (no/little field duty)
    I didn't want to be with me after a couple weeks in the field :lol:

    and having a pro-military and aggressive stance is not political?

    Yeah, it is, but you didn't hear anyone in here running off at the mouth about it like you did. I'm 100% pro-military, but that doesn't make me aggressive. In fact I'm a rather laid back fellow.

    And Scuba, I deal with soldiers that spend 3 months in the field without showers or laundry. A few weeks is nothing, lol....

    pro-military is indeed aggressive(you may be laid back as you call it in your ordinary life, but your stand on pro-military is very aggressive). And yes posting a picture of a military/navy is indeed the equivalent of opening your big month and saying you are pro-military and aggressive. And I simply said that killing people is wrong. Just think about it.

    I actually don't mind his military stand or whatever, the guy can support what ever he wants and take pictures of what ever he wants, but I think this picture should stay in the family album and not on an international forum because it will in fact create a(good or bad) political discussion. It is inevitable.
