It is very important that the most senior leadership make it absolutely clear that this kind of bad behavior and poor judgment is not only unacceptable, but that there is no place in the Navy for those who engage in this sort of frat house behavior in the workplace,” said Aubrey Sarvis, Army veteran and executive director for Servicemembers Legal Defense Network.
