    Ahhh Laem Chabang, Thailand! a place where many green and old shipmates have sold their souls to the devil during liberty and returned with tiny microbial consolation prizes. Luckily with better education and government intervention, most of the sex workers now practice safe sex which is a win win for everyone.

    So very, very true! Some years ago COM 7th Fleet came out with a regulation that sailors can no longer cavort with the "ladies of the evening"....anywhere.

    In Thailand some of them are not female. Enywho recently a Submarine CO was busted last year for...well read the details;

    ""A Navy submarine commander was disciplined and demoted last summer after admitting to paying for female prostitutes while stationed in the Philippines.

    Capt. Travis Zettel lost the confidence to command the attack submarine USS Bremerton and was relieved of duty back in August following the investigation.

    The investigation by the U.S. Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) was launched following a sailor’s tip to the Department of Defense Inspector General’s hotline, saying Zettel told him he “requested/ordered ten girls to arrive at the hotel,” according to documents obtained by the Kitsap Sun.

    The sailor later saw the commander with around 10 “provocatively dressed females outside the front door of the hotel.”

    Another sailor also apparently enjoyed the company of women and was seen with three “local females holding onto his arm as he was wandering around” and greeting his fellow sailors.""

    Translation..someone who did not like him ratted him out.

    ATLANTIC OCEAN (Feb. 7, 2019) An F/A-18E Super Hornet assigned to the "Pukin' Dogs" of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 143 performs an arrested landing on the flight deck of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72). Abraham Lincoln is underway conducting a composite training unit exercise (COMPTUEX) with Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 12. The components of CSG 12 embody a “team-of-teams” concept, combining advanced surface, air and systems assets to create and sustain operational capability. This enables them to prepare for and conduct global operations, have effective and lasting command and control, and demonstrate dedication and commitment to becoming the strongest warfighting force for the Navy and the nation.
