I got real smart when I was on perm. SP "hard hat" duty in Naples (70-72) When the Amphibs pulled in and the TF assigned Marines to the Fleet Patrol which we managed while the TF was in port. I got the most decorated and highest ranking NCO who was the biggest in the group of Fleet SP as a running mate. I told him YOU are incharge of the Marines tonite. I am not saying anything to them EXCEPT if they have done something to piss off the Guardia or the Carbinari, THEN I need to get in the middle of it.
