    U.S. Navy Directive 16134 (Inappropriate T-Shirts)

    The following directive was issued by the commanding officer

    of all naval installations in the Middle East. (It was obviously

    directed at the Marines.)

    by any military or civilian personnel serving in the Middle East:

    a. "Eat Pork or Die" [both English and Arabic versions]

    b. "Shrine Busters" [Various. Show burning minarets or
    bomb/artillery shells impacting Islamic shrines. Some with
    unit logos.]

    c. "Napalm, Sticks Like Crazy" [Both English and Arabic
    versions]

    d. "Goat - it isn't just for breakfast any more." [Both English
    and Arabic versions]

    receipt of this message:

    a.. "Islamic Religious Services Will Be Held at the Firing Range
    at 0800 Daily."

    b.. "Do we really need 'smart bombs' to drop on these dumb
    bastards?"

    All commands are instructed to implement sensitivity training

    While this sounds a little too funny to be true, the captain on a boat I was on once made us take down a poster that had an "evil doer" (it was Khomeini or Gaddafi) with a circle and line through his head (i.e. like Ghostbusters).

    I was almost busted for being out of uniform ,by a butter bar, because I had a CAT hat on instead of my utilty cap. Didn`t matter that I was under a dozer at the time, covered in oil, and grease. My leading chief got me out of that one.

    So yes after having been in the navy, I can see someone passing on this chicken s**t.

    Simple,

    The Navy does not release directives......They release Instructions, so to answer the question if this is real, the answer is no.

    Has to be a joke. The 16000 series SSIC code is wrong for uniform regs; it would be in the 1020 series.

    Its BS...no doubt. However, I was on Okinawa (I was in the USAF) in '77 and saw a Marine walking down the street in civies wearing a t-shirt with a mushroom cloud on it and it said "Do you remember when it was 10,000 degrees in the shade". The Japanese thought it quite rude...of course they also didn't like it when we would evac the B-52's there from Guam for typhoons and would neither confirm nor deny if they had nukes on board.

    well, true or not....

    I just wish that the Admiral who got busted for the parties in Las Vegas would have stood up and said "yep, I was there. it was a HELLUVA party and I'd do it all again in a minute."

    Aren't all retail stores in the Naval Service called Navy Exchanges? I thought Air Force and Army had Post Exchanges.

    Best,
