A new base CO was appointed and while inspecting the place, he saw 2 sailors guarding a bench. He went over there and asked them why do they guard it.

“We don’t know. The last CO told us to do so, and so we did!”

He searched for last CO’s phone number, and called him to ask him why did he want guards in this particular bench.

“I don’t know. The previous CO had guards, and I kept the tradition”.

Going back another 3 CO’S, he found a now 100 year old retired Admiral.

“- Excuse me sir. I’m now the CO of your base. I’ve found 2 guards assigned on a bench. Why did you put them there?”

“- What? The paint is still wet?!?”

I do that is why I am laughing...

My first underway 1995 USS Michigan SSBN 727 somewhere in the Pacific Ocean.
I was just a baby. I got qualified Submarines the next month. Good times.

My favorite, my Division officer giving me the pie in the eye on my last underway on 727 in 2000. 9 underways on that boat.

One of the A-schools I taught. I am the short first class on the right.

Finished up on SSBN 732. 3 underways there.

Heard this story at a conference before the Internet, and it was posited as true. Couldn't verify it on line when I looked into it twenty years ago, but hope it is, because it summarizes bureaucratic tradition.

Supposedly, during WWII, specs for British fighters specified that all seating surfaces must be treated with camel poop. Apparently they had a farm in England with a herd of camels whose only job was to produce a deuce. It was dutifully rubbed into the leather which was cured for several months.

Finally someone asked where this spec. came from and they found out that during the British Raj, camel dung in India was used to treat saddles as a tiger deterrent. The spec sheet for the leather was incorporated into airplane manufacturing and got passed along for forty years with no one asking why.
