This being the Navy and all, I'm going to go with a definite "maybe" on this one... In all seriousness... a) If A-poolers really are that screwed up, then why aren't the stucon officers addressing the situation instead of sending PO2? b) Sometimes internal JOPA discussions get ugly. But at the appearance of any enlisted and/or most O-4s and O-5s, discussion should cease. c) (My opinion)--Don't let a sailor get in your face and walk over you. The good ones are professional and won't try. The ones who are disrespectful and disrupt good order and discipline need to be addressed IMMEDIATELY. d) I'd be lucky to get up in front of my wardroom to criticize them, and finish more than a sentence or two. If you're used to everyone politely hearing you out and taking notes on your powerful insights...good luck.
