#5 Character aside for the moment, guys in his position should be better problem solvers than faking his death via e-mail.
Question: Is this the first time he's screwed up? If not, his superiors' OER from ensign to this date ought to be reviewed. 'cause if it isn't, they screwed up. Costs time and money and opportunity to get a guy this far, and if he's a known loser, that's a big organizational screw up.

#6 And the only reason they bagged this guy is that she dimed him out? Says a lot for his superiors...

#8 This sort of reminds me of a guy I knew in the Navy. Let's call him J. While our ship was in the yards in Philadelphia, J's wife stayed with her parents in New York. He took up with a dancer at a club, telling her that he and his wife were separated. That part was true - he was in Philly, she was in New York. Anyway, when our ship left the yards, he told the dancer that he and his wife had reconciled.

His roommate, T, decided to play a trick on him - T and the comms officer faked a telegram from the dancer saying that she was not going to give him up without a fight. She planned to meet the ship when we arrived in port, knowing that J's wife would be on the pier as the ship pulled in. The dancer planned to have it out with J's wife, and let the best woman win.

They gave J the telegram when we were a few hours out from port to give him some time to stew over it. They finally had to tell him the truth before he jumped overboard.

J later was cashiered from the Navy for sexual harassment, drunkenness in uniform and a variety of other charges. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
