Fleet Marine Life #95 – Okinawan Friday

2011-10-02-fleetmarinelife95 - Okinawan Friday

Good old Okinawa. I remember when all the bases were locked down over something that one individual Marine did. This asshole was USMC SSGT Tyron Hadnott. He had been in the Marines for 18 years and was charged of sexual assault of a 14 year old girl in Okinawa.


This isn’t a freaking set up. The SSGT approached this 14 year old girl on his motorcycle. Why would he even think of putting himself in a situation where he could get in trouble? Is he retarded?

Under the US military court, he was convicted of abusive sexual conduct and received 4 years in prison. Four other charges, including rape of a child under 16, making a false official statement, adultery and “kidnapping through inveigling,” or trickery, were dropped in a plea bargain.

After that international incident, all the bases were locked down and no one was allowed to leave except higher ups. The people who didn’t have anything to do with the damn incident got punished. I hated libo on base. There’s nothing to do but drink alcohol and cry in your room or go to Camp Foster’s Globe and Anchor which is also known as “Hook and Jab” because of all the stupid fights that happen over there for stupid shit.

Why the hell are we still in Okinawa? Wasn’t the cold war over decades ago? The Japanese obviously don’t want us there since our service members continually fuck their shit up. Japan can defend them own damn selves. Also, we’re broke! We owe too much to too many people. It’s time we leave.

Getting our liberty taken because of what one asshole Staff Sergeant did since 1775.
