Is this going to be as bad as I'm imagining it to be? Or is this a kinder friendlier Navy? Or is it top secret?
Please update us as soon as you recover.
Depends heavily on the CO, and the imagination of the senior enlisted. I've seen the gambit from pretty tame to outright hazing. Lacking any formal instruction, the line crossing ceremonies are very personality driven....
Even if you are the "Old Man" (CO of the ship) you will go through the same ceremony and treated the same as the lowest of wogs. Unless he/she decides to hide away in his/her stateroom. Everything is "optional", so you don't have to play if you don't want to. Of course, nothing will destroy any chance of building comraderie and being labeled a wuss faster than trying to slime out of the hazing.I have a hard time beleiving that the O-3 physician is going to get hazed the same as the privates. Afterall, you have so many options for revenge.
