About this Episode

CV shares the story of a Navy air traffic controller who assisted a fellow sailor who was found wandering San Diego after enjoying a few too many libations, only to be relentlessly harrassed when the Navy news printed a story about her recieving a Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal for her good deed with fake, place-holder quotes about the incident. DVIDs corrected the article, but the damage was done and the trolls were out in full force.

Ashley shares news of the Congressional Gold Medal presented to the crew USS Indianapolis and The American Legion resolution that helped make this recognition possible.

Jeff laments the use of refurbished Vietnam-era equipment in Marine Corps training, the likes of which may have caused a AAV training accident off the coast of Southern California.
