My son finished up a five year hitch in the USMC last year. He's no Nancyboy, he can skin a buck and run a trotline, for sure. He now sports long hair, a long beard and a nose ring. I figure he's just flipping the bird to all that regulation nonsense.

I remember sitting there and thinking,,,
How do these men ever attract women?
Have you seen modern women? There are some good ones left out there, but most are 400lbs, blue hair, and like clams, or feminist man-haters. And we wonder why the population is falling off. Why would any man want that?

Frankly, I don't particularly care too much what others do, I do not follow the crowds or trendy groups. I never have, I am my own person, have my hair cut short, don't have a beard, don't drink, use illicit drugs, don't dance, don't cuss or smoke and I never have. I enjoyed life too well to dilute it with alcohol or other things. Matter of fact, I would drink a Coke when others drank a beer when I was int he military and often would be made fun of because I didn't go along with the crowd. I was in when a lot of promotions were decided with "rubbing elbows" at the NCO Club and I never frequented the clubs.

I'm the same age as you. I may be one of the only sailors that doesn't have a tattoo. I had a uncle that was a retired Master Chief. I seem to remember him telling me not to get a tattoo. I guess I never had any desire to have one. Or any body piercings. But I do have a beard most of the time.
Same here. Made through my Navy career without getting a single tat or piercing, but had a beard and/or moustache for most of my service.

You're absolutely right; I remember my folks struggling with the "60's flower power hippies and the music. Sometimes it's just difficult to pass the baton to the new generation. I'm thankful that I raised my son to be respectful and a conservative. Like Granny said "it'll all come out in the wash"...
Just an aside. My first wife used to get that saying mixed up with another one. She'd say, "It'll all come out in the rain."

I am 39. I have no beard and am bald and I dress well. I do however have a lot of tattoos though. I have a sleeve on my right arm and three pieces on my left arm. They are 2A tattoos, an American flag, Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and the Halloween 1 pumpkin holding the knife. And I have The Godfather logo in Italian. I’m sure many look at me and judge as being some freak or a loser but I am neither. I’m a Christian, a husband, and a father. I am respectful and call people mam and sir. I’ve raised my son to do the same. Sadly many in Gen X and beyond don’t follow suit. But I see many that haven’t been raised much at all.

Y’all do realize that Rick Blaine isn’t a real person, right?
