Navy Admiral Caught Using Porn During Training Exercises

Navy Admiral Caught Using Porn During Training Exercises

Written on March 12th, 2016 in Stories by Anthony Spencer

Porn addiction is bad enough at home, but when it crosses into your work time it can have quick repercussions. In nearly every place of employment in America, viewing pornography at work or on company equipment leads to instant termination. The higher the job ranking, the harder the fall.

A one-star admiral for the Navy has been removed from his post after it was discovered he viewed porn during major training exercises last year on a government computer. The rear admiral admitted that he did it, saying “I’m guilty; I didn’t know it was this much.” He was removed from his post on January 8th.

What may surprise you was that the amount of porn was very small. He watched 4 hours during a six day period, and then 5 more hours during a five-day period while on the ship. Routine security scans found that the admiral had accessed the images. The investigation also found that the admiral looked at women in bikinis on his office computer, but the admiral denies that he ever looked at porn there.

According to the admiral, he slid down into porn thanks to pop-ups on his browser. After following them, he then turned to navigating to the sites directly. It wasn’t just the porn that was troublesome though. Accessing those sites also put him in violation of computer security rules that he had signed in the past.

The Navy also took the unusual step of adding a letter of reprimand that found him guilty of violating orders and conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman.

It seems like common sense that you should never view pornography at work or with work equipment, but porn addiction knows no boundaries. The consequences can be severe if you’re caught. But you can fight and conquer your addiction.
