"Men won't talk about their feelings" isn't why male mental health is so bad. It's because no one cares, and it's really no better for women whatsoever.

They NJP'ed me right before I separated.

I was in the barracks busy packing my room getting ready for the move that was scheduled in 2 days.

A hot and bothered butter bar decided to do random room inspections at 1730 in the afternoon.

I had to run out to my car to grab the box tape I had forgotten in my trunk and I come back to my room with all the lights on (I turn off all my lights before leaving my room).

I didn't know what had happened but I didn't really care because I was about to get my dd214 tomorrow afternoon.

Come tomorrow and I get called into my LPO's office telling me to report to this room and Yada Yada Yada.

So I go and I didn't really know what was going on.

A bunch of other sailors were there too.

I was the first to enter the room and I was all smiles (due to me being nervous) and filled with excitement and confusion at the same time.

The while cgiefs mess was there. From the CMC down.

They tell me to do facing maneuvers, and so I do.

The first question they ask me is "if I k ow what I'm doing there.

I let out a laugh and say no.

They look at me with anger and confusion. I think they thought I wasn't taking it seriously (I wasn't taking it seriously because I didn't even know what I was there for.)

They end up showing me pictures of my room in total shambles.

They ask me why my room was like this.

I look at the CMC with a smile and told him that I was packing up my room due to me leaving the military.

We exchange looks and tells me to leave.

And so I walked out. No facing maneuvers, no acknowledgement to the chiefs. It was my and their final fuck you.
