Why Not Withdraw Wrongdoers' Liberty Cards?

By: An Affected Servicemember

Date Posted: 2000-09-08

This is my opinion on this so called instruction to keep the peace and order among the lower pay grades especially those E-3 and below of which I am one of them directly affected by this while spending liberty off base.

First off all, there is absolutely nothing wrong about watching out for each other anytime, anywhere. But this is where it gets too far. Now can you tell me what am I supposed to do when I go out and have to spend a date with your significant other (i.e. boyfriend or girlfriend), a local national or not, and I got to have somebody with me just so I can get out of the gate without being asked on why am I by myself and not have a so-called "buddy" to tag along? Tell me what can I do about it? The answer is absolutely nothing.

Now, it's my turn to ask the question. Whatever happened to this thing called PRIVACY? For all I know it's been thrown out completely out of the window. Now how will I ever spend time with him/her alone in private if I have somebody tagging along with me so I can the very least get the pleasure of spending private time together. This is really pathetic. I don't need somebody chaperoning me in this day and age. It's really giving a big hit on my relationship. What in the world were you people thinking when you come up with something BS like this? Is this what we, in the lower pay grade get for serving our country diligently? Getting screwed with stupid policies every week. Mass punishment for some individuals' ridiculous behavior. I can tell you a solution if you will just listen and plan it very carefully.

Why don't you start issuing liberty cards for everybody? This is how it will work. I a person commits any untoward incident, get their card from them and have ONLY them be under restriction not to go out from the base at all without someone else with them or not go out of the base at all. This way, all of us who are good citizens still get to enjoy our liberty time how we wanted it. This would really put morale back up and running again for service members in Okinawa considering how very low it has been. I really hope you people are listening to this. I suggest this be implemented ASAP.
