I have never been so ashamed to be an American.

When I joined the Navy, one thing I never expected was to be a babysitter for a bunch of drunken adults. Today, that’s what I have ended up being. I’ve apologized to countless Italians for the behavior of the people I am on Liberty with, and it feels like I am some kind of babysitter, not person trying to relax. I’m more stressed out now than I was underway.

This is not ok. Normal people don’t act like this, and sailors shouldn’t either. As a ship, we are a disgrace to the United States.
