    earlier this story ran that she was an officer.....usually the officers are paid enough they don't have to steal computers...

    How everyone assumed this young lady was an officer I don't know, she was a Non-Commissioned officer (NCO). Not all of us officers are bad and most of us may have done our share of good to help out those who accomplished the mission with us! Happy Veterans Day for all!

    She looks like she might bit just a wee bit pzzed off that she got caught. Tough turkey, honey. She's worse than a thug...bad wrapped up in a good wrapper....

    Well, now it is NOT an officer, good, but rather an EW.

    It's good to see you're not bitter. Even though I do share some of your views regarding officiers in general, keep in mind they have a whole different set of rules that govern their behavior.

    What they fail to process is military rank structure and chain-of-command affords operations being maintained without officers but NOT without Enlisted and NCO's.

    Thanks for your service to our great nation.

    Back in the day, when I was a low-life scumbag beer-drinking, woman chasing enlisted sailor we didn't have much use for officers....

    Now that I am an honored veteran held in high esteem for my past service to the nation, I see nothing has changed my mind about officers.

    Happy Veteran's Day!
