This Redditor Just Destroyed His Military Career With A Neck Tattoo
Sometimes you get drunk at the watering hole off base with your platoon drinking buddies and stumble back to the barracks. Other times you black out and end up at a tattoo parlor getting a stripper’s name eternally inked on your ass.
One anonymous Redditor of an unknown sobriety level decided to go a step further and get a full-on back tattoo that extends up to his neck. The problem? He’s in the U.S. Army.
“I got a new tattoo which is extends to my neck and is barely visible when I'm debloused or in PTS … am I fucked?” he asked the r/Army subreddit?
And the replies were ruthless.
“It better be some sick tribal pattern or your CO will kill ya,” wrote user SortaPog.
Others simply replied, “U ded.”
Because the original poster deleted his account and pictures of the tattoo, we don't know for sure if the post is legit. One Redditor managed to find a link to a shoddy picture of the alleged tattoo in question, which appears to show a dark tattoo indeed peeking above the collar of a t-shirt… just the tip.

User RobertFlobert believes it's a stripper’s name, “~$$CHASTITY$$~” to be exact.

A group of vets are raising money to pay for a medal the Iraqi government awarded them, but never delivered
In June 2011 Iraq's defense minister announced that U.S. troops who had deployed to the country would receive the Iraq Commitment Medal in recognition of their service. Eight years later, millions of qualified veterans have yet to receive it.
The reason: The Iraqi government has so far failed to provide the medals to the Department of Defense for approval and distribution.
A small group of veterans hopes to change that.
For a cool $8.5 million, you could be the proud owner of a "fully functioning" F-16 A/B Fighting Falcon fighter jet that a South Florida company acquired from Jordan.
The combat aircraft, which can hit a top speed of 1,357 mph at 40,000 feet, isn't showroom new — it was built in 1980. But it still has a max range of 2,400 miles and an initial climb rate of 62,000 feet per minute and remains militarized, according to The Drive, an automotive website that also covers defense topics, WBDO News 96.5 reported Wednesday.
A doctor who treated accident victims has a radioactive isotope in his body. Russia says it came from his diet
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian authorities said on Friday that a doctor who treated those injured in a mysterious accident this month had the radioactive isotope Caesium-137 in his body, but said it was probably put there by his diet.
The deadly accident at a military site in northern Russia took place on Aug. 8 and caused a brief spurt of radiation. Russian President Vladimir Putin later said it occurred during testing of what he called promising new weapons systems.
Groundwater at the Air Force Academy is contaminated with the same toxic chemicals polluting a southern El Paso County aquifer, expanding a problem that has cost tens of millions of dollars to address in the Pikes Peak region.
Plans are underway to begin testing drinking water wells south of the academy in the Woodmen Valley area after unsafe levels of the chemicals were found at four locations on base, the academy said Thursday.
