Curfews. Buddy policies. Alcohol restrictions. More training.
Sailors say their liberty time is suffering due to the actions of a handful of no-good, misbehaving shipmates.
Vice Adm.. Scott Swift, head of 7th Fleet, is empowering sailors to “remain vigilant” and correct those who step out of line. He’s also asking junior enlisted what ideas they have for cutting out “unacceptable personal behavior.”

We want your feedback. What’s life been like under the ever-changing liberty rules? How is morale? Is punishment-for-all a fair way to correct the actions of a few? How would you deal with the problem, or is it even a problem?
Is the media putting an unfair focus on Japan? Are the locals too sensitive?
