Sailor’s Wife and his “Boat Boo” brawl at Navy Christmas party

| January 9, 2020

Many news outlets in the Hampton Roads / Tidewater area, which includes Norfolk Naval Base, are reporting on a brawl that broke out at the Christmas party for the USS Eisenhower held at a local hotel.

The hotel was trashed in the process.

Sailor’s wife and his “boat boo” brawl at Navy Christmas party

I will admit my ignorance and say I was not familiar with the term “boat boo” but apparently a Master Chief Petty Officer (E-9) had an inappropriate relationship with a junior enlisted sailor.  At the Christmas party, the wife or ex-wife showed up and demanded to know what happened while the ship was deployed.

You may have to watch the video several times to figure out who is who, but the above listed article is hilarious as people chimed in on Reddit about NJP possibilities and other things.

“You get an NJP! You get an NJP,” one poster wrote, mimicking Oprah. “Everybody gets an NJP.”

“So much crushed red velvet,” wrote another.

Others gave tips on how to avoid having one’s ear lobes ripped out or spraining one’s ankles while at a social function.

“From what I’ve seen, the first things to go from the female when s**t hits the fan are earrings and high heels, one user wrote. “Hard to fight in shoes that are barely meant to be walked in and ear rings will get ripped out.If they didn’t have shoes on, [it’s] safe to say they were ready to throw down.”

Since the local police were involved there will be an investigation. Those of you still connected with the military or DoD may have this as a case study in the not-too-distant future in-service training sessions.

    And here I thought “Get some!” only applied to the Marines.

    The same shot happened in Bethesda back in 2015 at the Corporate Christmas Party for a proud but humble woman owned business that sells software to the federal government when Elaine Ricci started throwing down with Hack Stone’s lovely bride, Rosetta Stone. It’s a wonder that they even let us back in The Waffle House.

    Crackle from the hotel 1MC…”Housekeeping staff to Ball Room A, we have an excess of trash in there. Never mind housekeeping, Security, the trash is fighting amongst itself!”

    “Boat Boo” !!??!? ?dahell??!!?

    OK SO, I’ve seen this about 20 times and have heard (read) comments all over the intrawebs about this incident from “Well I konw …” and this and that.
    Take from this as you will…

    “40 ppl are going to mast; the CMC (command master chief) just took over b/c the previous CMC was relieved due to fraterzation with females onboard. One of the master chiefs onboard (was sleeping with a new sailor (she is in black dress). The master chief and his wife obviously went to the party and the black dress female didn’t know boat boo rules so she confronted him in front of his wife (woman in maroon dress). That is how the fight started. He was also sleeping with another sailor and that female got mad so she joined in on the fight. Apparently, the fight got bigger and went outside. After all was said and done, they were also fighting on the ship. Female chiefs were fighting in the berthing and there was also beef in the wardroom.”
    (I’ll take this with a grain of sale because others on the IKE called out this person for their narrative, but it sounds good)

    “I would have start yelling. … as a former BM “general quarters general quarters all hands man your drama stations” (OK I laughed at this one)

    “So are you trying to tell us aircraft carriers are actually $6 billion dollar trailer parks?” (I don’t know but apparently everyone agreed on this comment)

      “…and the black dress female didn’t know boat boo rules…”

      Being but a Wing Wiper of Very Little Brain, all I know is never mess around with ANYONE inside the same VOR.

      Or so I’ve been told.

    Sorry, was “Hooligan Navy,” “Knee-deep Sailor,” “Puddle-Pirate” etc.(any newer ones are welcomed), and I have never watched a single episode of Oprah. I DID do a search first, (NJP+Oprah)with zilch results. Does anyone know what in hell an NJP is? Please type slowly with simple words if anyone does.

    • Haywire Angel says:

      Non Judicial Punishment. In some cases, a slap on the wrist. In this case, not so sure….

      • Fox2! says:

        I suspect there are going to be some Summary and Special Court Martial recommendations coming out of that Mast.

    • AW1Ed says:

      Non Judicial Punishment, aka Captain’s Mast, Office Hours or Article 15. A trial of sorts held by the Commanding Officer for (usually) minor offences. More serious charges may be referred to a Court Martial, or the accused may request one.

      • BruteLarson407 says:

        Dammit, sorry I flagged you by accident. Thanks, (You too, Haywire Angel). I guess the Oprah part is what messed me up.

        • AW1Ed says:

          You reported an Admin’s comment? Bad form, Brute. It was nice knowing you.

          Just kidding, no harm no foul.

          • BruteLarson407 says:

            Thanks(sheepishly)! I’m new to this (commenting online). I’ll get a little better I promise.

        • Daisy Cutter says:

          It is a play off winning a prize as Oprah famously said:

          “You get a car. You get a car. You get a car.”

          In this case, the “prize” is Non-Judicial Punishment.

          Probably not as funny when explained. What makes a joke funny is when you make the connection yourself. Sorry if I ruined it.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Non Judicial Punishment is where and when a COmmanding Officer decides the guilt or innocence of an Enlisted Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine. Speaking as an Army Vet, it’s referred to as an Article 15 and there are two varieties, Company and Field Grade. A Company Grade is where a Company level Commanding Officer, usually a Captain (O3) issues it and the receiving party can be reduced one Grade if E4 and below. A Field Grade Article 15 is given by a Major (O4) or higher where a Staff Sergeant (E6) or Sergeant can be reduced one grade and an E4 and below can be reduced to E1.

      Captain’s Mast

      not a place you want to visit

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        I heard that the term “Captain;s Mast” came from the days when said punishment resulted in a Sailor getting tied to a mast and receiving a number of lashes from a whip, sometimes a cat o’nine tails!

  7. AW1Ed says:

    Never heard the term “Boat Boo” but am familiar with the concept. Because they were land based, P-3 squadrons were among the first Navy units to go co-ed. Of the married men* on my flight crew, MrsAW1 and I are the only ones still together.

    No females on Tactical Aircraft at the time. This too has changed.

    BT-1000 vs DePendapaa

    • Sparks says:

      There were some BOG dependapas there weren’t there. Good thing dependent pay isn’t by the pound.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      From the linked Article:

      “From what I’ve seen, the first things to go from the female when s**t hits the fan are earrings and high heels, one user wrote. “Hard to fight in shoes that are barely meant to be walked in and ear rings will get ripped out.If they didn’t have shoes on, [it’s] safe to say they were ready to throw down.”

      Those Gals were barefoot and not sporting any earrings, they were HELL BENT on brawling, that Chief should have either been a lot pickier about where he dipped his stick OR just have jacked off like a madman like I did on my ME Tours. And yeah, there were indeed some hefty Dependapottomi!!!

  9. rgr769 says:

    Looks like there will be quite a crowd at the next ship’s captain’s mast.

  10. Forest Green says:

    I swear I saw a hatchet flash by in one shot and a later someone waving a wig around, or maybe it was a scalp.

  11. Sparks says:

    Nothing good happens when you billet men and women together. No matter rank, rate, education (or lack thereof), it just never works out. Also, it seems the requirements for making Chief these days are more about quotas than merit.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      ANOTHER liberal Social Engineering experiment inflicted upon the Military by libtard politicians gone to shit.

      • Commissar says:

        Bullshit. Women serving in the military is not a “libtard” experiment.

        Hard to believe you ever served in a 21st century Army.

        No wonder the CSM had to babysit you.

        • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

          “No wonder the CSM had to babysit you.”
          PROJECTING again, aren’t we Lars? That makes me even more certain that you were the kind of Officer that the BC wanted leashed at all times because you couldn’t even approach the Chow Hall without causing a SNAFU that would go all the way to a General’s desk!

        • Sparks says:

          It’s not women serving in the military. It’s women serving in the military in the wrong jobs. Jobs they are not and never will be qualified for. To the detriment of them, others and the mission.

          • rgr769 says:

            It is also billeting females with males—an obvious formula for hanky panky.

            • Hondo says:

              Bingo. In practice, the only way that works is single-gender billeting, preferably in separate buildings, with opposite-gender access severely restricted or prohibited outright for other than official duty purposes. And even then, there will be problems with unauthorized visitors looking for some horizontal calisthenics.

              Not exactly sure how you’d do that on a ship afloat. And good luck with changing human behavior regarding sex.

              • timactual says:

                “Not exactly sure how you’d do that on a ship afloat”

                Heck, they couldn’t prevent same sex hanky panky when the consequences would be even harsher.

                Single gender billeting is not a sure solution, either. Unless personnel are restricted to those billets 24/7.

                • rgr769 says:

                  Yes, but coed sleeping facilities breeds familiarity. And we all know what that breeds.

                  • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

                    Hell, I’ve heard war stories of coed BCT Units where they’d sneak off and fuck like jackrabbits, what do you expect when you leave late teens and twentysomethings all alone and ditto for many adults who let their crotches think for them?

    • OldSoldier54 says:


    • timactual says:

      Nonsense. I have it on good authority that as long as females can do the same job as males everything will be just fine. all that “unit cohesion” and “good order and discipline” stuff is just an excuse to maintain the patriarchy.

      Oh, by the way, sarcasm.

      • rgr769 says:

        It’s always about the “patriarchy” and “racism.” And also, let’s not forget about the evil cis-genderism. Once we recognize service members should be allowed to get it on with whatever imaginary gender or species, all these problems will be solved. Soon, the Progs will abolish all forms of punishment in the military, just like they are doing in San Fransicko and New Yawk City. It will be utopia, even in the military.

    What I don’t get is how would this Master Chief even referee what is going on?

    I mean, it’s not like he can turn to the junior petty officer and say “Petty Officer So-and-So, you better check yourself.

    So Classy! This is what happens when parents allow their kids to be raised by Social Media.

  16. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    I know that this is off topic, but have you heard about the latest on that Ukrainian Jet likely being SHOT down over Iran?

    • rgr769 says:

      Yes. Daily Mail even has a photo of the unexploded warhead of the 2nd SAM launched, which landed in a nearby town. We have satellite surveillance of the launches and electronic surveillance that shows the SAM radars lit-up the airliner just before it blew up. We will likely be hearing from the commie cuttlefish that it was all Orange Man Bad’s fault, as the Proggy propagandists have already started this meme.

      What likely happened is that CPT Mohammad was told to have his radar guys practice on the commercial aircraft departing Tehran airport and some morons hit the buttons to launch in the excitement of the attack on “the Great Satan.” Or, some idiot thought that 737 was a B-52.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        SHIT like that happens when you put goat-humpers with a third grade education on equipment like that supervised by Officers who got where they are simply by family and political connections!

        • rgr769 says:

          The nose cone photo on Daily Mail is a match for the nose w/ steering fins of the Ruskie SA-15. The Russians have supplied Iran with those missiles and the launchers since 2007. SA-15 has an RF proximity fuse, so the explosive charge isn’t in the nose cone, which likely housed the inertial navigation system. So the missile that took it down exploded near the plane rather than striking it. Each tracked launcher has its own radar, so there were likely only about a half dozen goat-humpers with low IQ’s involved in this epic screw-up.

          • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

            I can picture it now:

            Achmed: Muhammed, we now practice tracking plane with equipment, see? We now turn on radar and track plane, DO NOT push red button, okay?

            Muhammed: Yes Achmed, you mean THIS red Button? *CLICK*, *BOOM!* *WHOOSH!*

            Achmed: Oh, shit!

          • Hondo says:

            Partly correct. The proximity fuse antenna and transmitter, along with guidance jets, are located in the nose cone portion of the SA-15 missile. The remainder of the guidance section (autopilot, proximity fuse receiver, and command link receiver) are located in the missile’s center section; the warhead is immediately behind these. Beacon and command link antennae are located in the tail section. See the section describing the FAKEL 9M330/9M331/9M332 SAM at the following link.


            IMO either the guidance jets or the warhead explosion caused the obvious blackening/scorching on the bottom of the nose cone that’s clearly visible in the Daily Mail photo. My guess would be that’s from the guidance jets (to me it looks more like soot than scorch), but it could have been either or a combination of both.

          Captain Finlander: Now don’t worry, Commodore. The Bedford’ll never fire first. But if he fires one, I’ll fire one.

          Ensign Ralston: [launching the rocket] Fire One!

          One of the best ASW movies ever made.

    • Commissar says:

      Yeah, there is a cell video of a missile striking something in the air taken at the time of the Ukrainian plane going down.

      It was already clear by the debris field the plane exploded in the air.

      This pretty much confirms what we already knew to like.y be true.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        They also found sheet metal debris with shrapnel punctures in it, no wonder the Iranians are holding on to the Black Boxes!

    Hard to tell from the video but it appears none of those involved were wearing a uniform.

    The Navy can be thankful for that at least. Mitigates some of the embarrassment.

    • AW1Ed says:

      Idiocy like this is why I refused to attend “Mandatory Fun” functions, with the exception of post PRT cook outs. Of course those were CANX’ed. It cost me in face time, but I never was good at those games anyway. Although I never had to stand in front of The Old Man and tell him why LT. Whistledick needed his face punched. Twice.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        Shit like that is why I never took my Wife and Kid to unit “Mandatory Fun” events!

      The fuck it does.

      This guy is the same asshole who lectured “blueshirt scum” about the core values of honor, courage, and commitment, yet fails miserably at all three.

      Bet the morale at that command us lower than whale shit.

  18. SFC D says:

    Korea, 1988. Company Christmas party at the Camp Humphries NCO club. CO’s wife flies over for a Christmas visit, he brings her to the party. One of our generator mechanics who had had a couple of run-ins with the aforementioned CO also brings a date: The CO’s girlfriend, who had to move out of his apartment while the wife was visiting. There was no brawl, and I don’t believe the wife even knew what was afoot. But, watching the CO squirm and sweat all night was great for morale.

    • Mustang Major says:

      Ahh…generator mechanics; the the only profession in the Army that is totally neglected until the generators go out in the middle of an operation. Many an officer’s career is made on having a good generator mechanics in the unit and likewise, many an officer’s career is ruined due to poor generator mechanics.

      • Hack Stone says:

        Generator Mechanic is the all star of a Communications Battalion. No power, no Comm. We had a pretty talented guy at 9th Comm back in the mid to late 1990’s, he kept the 1’s and 0’s flowing.
