Military Review

Friday lovers club. What are the feasts of American sailors?

60
The tradition of celebrating certain events by military personnel with the invitation of family members is by no means unique to the Armed Forces of Russia. Joint parties during the holidays - a tradition for the US Army. The most popular type of holiday pastime for American military personnel and their families is Thanksgiving and Christmas. Holiday "collection" is typical for the crews of warships of the US Navy.


The plot contains footage of one of these parties, which was held among the personnel of the destroyer of the USS UST Curtis Wilbur (DDG-54). The same destroyer, whose appearance in the disputed islands in the South China Sea caused sharp criticism from official Beijing.

The crew of the American destroyer is 337 man, of which 23 are officers.

So how do American sailors celebrate Christmas?

The official on a warship: "Celebrate, but do not forget that democracy is in danger ..."

        If there were no blacks (African-Americans (nok)), then ordinary gatherings are akin to ours. People need holidays!
        PS: Afro-people also meet on Russian holidays, but either this is a rarity or is no longer a standard event ...

          But I want to note! Even on such a holiday, they managed to attract sponsor / s! At the table with gifts, there is a banner "Samsung".
          It would be very good if our megaphones and others supported our employees a little and presented them .... well, for example, lighters, multifunctional sets like a penknife.

          everything that I saw, no differences from all the Sailors of any country ... when the youngest served in the Baltic, (7 years ago) they had a "letyokha", with an earring in his tongue (on Kazantip vlyndil) ... but a photo ... I am not I will spread it ... (although I saved it), and "letёkha" threw off the sailors! Anyone have questions?

          These kids do not want a war in which their asses will suffer.
          And to destroy all subhuman by pressing buttons - why. Such a war completely suits them, they even want to get bigger and faster, earn extra money and stand up for democracy. save your best country in the world from wild barbarians.
          ... They say the German soldiers who were destroying us, too, were quite guys for nothing. Both families and children loved holidays.
          It remains only to recall whether families and children in besieged Leningrad, for example, loved the same thing.
          These are enemies. Our future killers. Here they are, with their ship and missiles. If we do not stop them, they will make their lovely holidays after we turn into oblivion and ashes.

          If we talk about a real war, then this is not about them. These "kids" are used to seeing the war as a computer toy.
          They are used to living hearty and sweet, and do not want to strain, but they want everyone to be afraid of them.
          For many of them, the hardships and deprivations of a real war are something unbelievable.

          There are a lot of thick ones. And with culture: Russian classics - literature and music are respected there. Those with a tower in a good university are quite developed people. But the rest of the nation is quite isolated, the bulk of what is going on beyond its state does not perceive, because not interested. And everyone scolds Washington laughing

          There are some "fattrests". I was amazed how many Americans eat - they constantly chew something - no, not "chewing gum" - they eat either their "donuts" - sweet rings, or hamburgers, or cakes, or muffins, or some other "tasty" to their taste. Even children go to school with clear signs of obesity. Moreover, many like "sports" are engaged in the morning, whole crowds in tracksuits "shake the fat" -type run .... In general, I once read an article that the problem with obesity in the United States is caused by two factors: 1-Americans are not they know how and do not want to suppress their desires, from childhood they are brought up as "free" individuals, but in fact, finished egoists, 2-unstable psyche is the scourge of all Americans, they constantly want something, but there is no way to satisfy this "want" , which causes the strongest stress, which they "seize" with all sorts of sweets. In general, the Americans themselves, those who are in the second and more generations are a finished nation, sheer degradation. Everything they keep on the wave of migration - fresh migrants are the most productive and active part of society, they try their best to become "Americans", gain a foothold in the country, get at least some position, etc. And already, their children become "real Americans "-fat, selfish, die-hard, etc. (hereinafter, everything is according to Zadornov) ... yes
