We had CCTV on board both ships I was on, but, luckily, Capt Honors wasn't our XO -- this was the gator navy anyway, just helicopters, no fighter jocks.
However, our floats were always 6 months on station -- think they're still the same length in Iraq and Afghanistan today -- so we'd do a turnover in Rota Spain
. One of our warrant officers, and intel guy, took a camcorder to the turnover party at the O club, and played it for us in the JIC -- I wasn't an officer and wasn't invited. ;-)
This was still a few years before the tailhook scandal in Las Vegas, but let me tell you, tailhook was tame compared to what these guys were doing. And yes, the Admiral was there too, it was all out in the open. I guess their favorite part was sumo wrestling in their underware -- in front of the young spanish waitresses. Had we as enlisted men
done any of that stuff, we'd have spent the rest of the cruise
in the brig.
But the guys we were relieving had spent several months in Beirut -- this was a year or two after the barracks bombings -- so I'm not going to find too much fault, but even then, I thought it was a bit childish.
