6 Men Kicked Out of the Navy for Selling Drugs To Undercover Cop At Firefly Music Fest
Six midshipmen have been kicked out of the Navy for using illegal substances at Firefly Music Festival, according to a report.
One man, 23-year-old Navy midshipman Zachary Williams was allegedly spotted snorting cocaine by an undercover cop at the music festival. Records say the officer then bought three bags of ecstasy from him and was offered a bump of cocaine on the spot.
Williams and his friend, Edward Hartman, were then arrested. Police went on to confiscate a total of 33 grams of ecstasy, 4.6 grams of cocaine, 1.1 grams of marijuana and a digital scale from their vehicles. The charges included “intent to deliver cocaine, second-degree conspiracy and possession of marijuana” and they were eventually released on a $142,000 bail.
Following those Firefly Music Festival arrests, the Naval Academy launched an investigation by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. It was found that cocaine, ecstasy, ketamine and hallucinogenic mushrooms were used recreationally among some of the naval cadets.
Now, all midshipmen are required to be drug tested at least three times a year at random.
According to Cmdr. David McKinney, six men have been released from the academy for their drug use. Another five midshipmen have been “administratively disciplined” for drug-related violations.
“The United States Navy and the Naval Academy both have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to the use of illegal substances and take all allegations of misconduct seriously,” McKinney said.
Trump Administration Signs Policy Ban Of Transgendered Troops
Through his a series tweets last year Donald Trump made his intentions known regarding Transgender eligibility in the U.S Armed Forces. It appears that he is one step closer to putting those measures into place.
Since posting these tweets, the Trump Administration began drawing up policy to put his words into action. Fast forward to present day, the policy recommendation has been finalized and Trump has quickly signed f on it, pending a congressional hearing.
The policy will allow Transgendered individuals who currently occupy a rank to remain in uniform, but they will have to submit to their sex assigned at birth. The policy also discriminates against all Trans personnel who have undergone top or bottom surgery or taken hormones.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis expressed his confidence in their arrangement:
“In my pressional judgment, these policies will place the Department Defense in the strongest position to protect the American people, to fight and win America’s wars, and to ensure the survival and success our service members around the world,”
The statement evidently provoked a strong reaction from Gender Advocacy groups and members the public alike. Irregardless actual implementation, the policy write-up is clear step back in our fight for human rights and privileges.

This year’s Army uniforms for their game against Navy pay homage through their design to the uniforms, service, and heritage the 10th Mountain Division from head to toe.
Product Performance Details, per Nike:
- Reduced Weight: Constructed from hydrophobic yarns that minimizes weight both when the uniform is dry as well as wet
- Increased Durability: Fewer cut-and-sew seams and a sturdier stretch woven fabric used in areas high impact and abrasion lead to an overall stronger uniform
- Greater Range Motion: A lightweight four-way stretch-woven fabric is used in areas low impact that require greater mobility
- Better Ventilation: Micro perforations have been laser cut into the uniform to manage heat
