Responsible Alcohol Use


EMPHASIS POINT: IF YOU CHOOSE TO DRINK, DRINK RESPONSIBLY
Instructor Notes: Alcohol misuse is the most significant contributing factor in liberty incidents,
yet it is entirely avoidable. Be prepared to confront misconceptions about alcohol misuse and to
emphasize the far-reaching consequences of many alcohol-related incidents. Use the CNFJ
Responsible Drinking Lesson Plan to guide your training.
I. The Basics
A. Exemplary personal and professional conduct is the standard for all personnel onboard USS
George Washington.
1. Good conduct is of strategic importance. We are ambassadors of the United States at
all times. Our continued presence in Japan depends on our good conduct in Japanese ports.
2. All USS George Washington personnel are responsible for upholding and enforcing
appropriate standards of behavior in Japan. Everyone from E-1 to O-10 must lead on this
issue.
3. Our Japanese hosts view us as military professionals and expect us to demonstrate a
high standard of personal responsibility.
B. Alcohol misuse is an easily avoidable contributing factor in liberty incidents. Alcohol-related
incidents negatively affect Sailors as individuals, the U.S. Navy as an organization, and the
United States image abroad.
II. Training Presentation
A. Review all required CNFJ and command materials.
III. Review Questions
A. What is the legal drinking age for Sailors in Japan?
B. What is the 0-0-1-3 guideline?
C. What is the Commanding Officers policy on alcohol?
D. If you think that you have a drinking problem, who can you contact for help?

Diary of a Drunk Driver - An Officers Perspective


"I am a 46 year old Naval Officer stationed in San Diego. I have been on
active duty for 27 years including 16 years of service as enlisted. The following
paragraphs lay out in detail, a chronological chain of events that completely
changed my life from Halloween 2005 to Halloween 2006. Please take a few
minutes to read this diary and hopefully what happened to me will never
happen to you:
A few points about myself I want to share before going into the details
of my eventual arrest for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol. I did not
consume alcohol on a consistent basis. As a matter of fact, I only drank alcohol
occasionally at home or at occasional social gatherings. I am an avid long
distance runner and have completed 2 marathons (Rock and Roll here in San
Diego and the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington D.C.) and 3 of San Diego's
Half Marathons. I have two almost grown children and have very strong
religious and moral beliefs. However, I am also an alcoholic. What happened
to me can happen to anybody, anytime, anywhere if you are an alcohol user. I
am not telling anyone not to use alcohol. I am saying however DO NOT, DO
NOT, DO NOT, consume alcohol of any amount and operate a motor vehicle.
Take a taxi, call a friend, or walk home. DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!!!!!!
On 29 October 2005 at about 20:45 I was arrested for driving under the
influence of alcohol on Interstate 8 at the College Avenue exit. I had just left
a social gathering where alcohol was served. While driving home, I was
stopped by the San Diego Sheriff's department because my driving was impaired
by the alcohol and I crossed over the white lines that separated the lanes. I
was issued a field sobriety test and failed. I was placed under arrest at the
scene and transported to the San Diego County jail. Don't believe what you see
on TV where the high priced lawyer comes and gets you out 15 minutes later.
IT WILL NOT HAPPEN. You will be there for a minimum of 8 to 10 hours. You
will be searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and then placed in a cell 20x20
with 40 of Your Best Friends that you never want to see again. The only thing
in this room is a toilet in the corner. After the 8 to 10 hours and when
processing was complete I was released. I walked out of the jail on the streets
of San Diego at about 0800 in the morning and came face to face with at least
75 homeless people. And I thought I had a bad night."
I had to attend a 3 month First Conviction Program at San Diego State
University that included 12 One hour classes each week for 12 weeks and 6 two
hour lectures for 6 weeks.
I attended a mandatory Mothers Against Drunk Driving lecture in which 3
moms told the story of the loss of their children to drunk drivers. A very
emotional and guilt ridden experience.

I had to complete 10 days of community service picking up trash,


cleaning parks, etc., for the city.
I had to hire an attorney to represent me and contact my insurance
company.
I went to court and received a substantial fine. The combined costs of
this was:
First Conviction Program:
MADD:
Attorney:
Fine and Court Costs:

$445
$25
$1,700
$1,950

Total:

$4,120

And I have not even talked about the insurance. It does not matter who
your insurance company is, they will cancel you and you will have to obtain a
much less reputable insurance at a much higher price. It will cost you
thousands and thousands of dollars over the years.
Then comes the DMV. OH JOY.
I lost my driver's license completely for 30 days and had a restricted
license for 5 more months. And this was before I ever went to court. The DMV
will revoke and suspend your license without a conviction. Driving is a privilege,
not a right. Just being cited is justification. And then you have to pay to get it
back. $195 is the cost.
I was selected for promotion to LCDR effective early 2006. My
promotion was withdrawn and I was removed from the promotion listing. I was
processed for administrative separation and will retire involuntarily within the
next 6 months. The reason I talk about this is because if I had not been
arrested, I would have continued on active duty for 4 more years and reached a
30 year retirement. If I lived for 20 more years which is very reasonable, the
loss of this LCDR pay at 30 years vice LT pay at 26 years will end up being
approximately $600,000 over 20 years.
As you have noticed, I made a point of the monetary loss.
The monetary loss PALES IN COMPARISON to the shame, emotional pain,
grief and guilt, that this will cause YOU, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR FRIENDS, YOUR
CO-WORKERS, and just about every person you come in contact with. It can
COMPLETELY DESTROY YOUR LIFE as you know it. It will have an adverse affect
on EVERY FACET OF YOUR LIFE. I am just thankful that I DID NOT KILL

SOMEONE while driving under the influence of alcohol. I have only detailed the
highlights (if you can call them that) of this experience. There are many more,
smaller painful points but they are too many to mention.
My hope is that for those of you who take the time to read this you will
not drink and drive. If my pain keeps just one of you from drinking and driving
and even more if it saves one life then it was worth it."
