I have heard a lot of crazy stories about the Navy...but this one takes the cake:

On any ship, there used to be a red toilet seat reserved for those with uhm... VD

Freind swears it is true...

It is true, you can find evidence of it at some Naval museums.

If you ever visit the battleship Missouri in Pearl Harbor one of the heads has one.

Cool.. with pics..

Supposedly this was common practice up until WWII?

I told my freind that we would get the answer in about five minutes on ARFCOM...

Could hardly find anything on Google...Just one other online forum...and no pics..

Guess this settles the argument...

Whats a red seat for? I'd kinda figure it out if it was pink.

Not to threadjack or anything, but when I was in MCT, right out of boot camp, one of our instructors got us all to believe that red patchers (landing support batallion marines) all were HIV positive.

On a side note, I can't help but think about our monthly "pissing/crapping in a public toilet" threads.

I can't possibly imagine taking a shit side by side with my shipmates into a trough of running water like that.

I'd sooner hold it until midnight and hang my ass off the fantail.
