I'm sorry, Cass. That must have really sucked. I imagine that there is probably nothing much you could do in that situation. From what I gather, it's better to keep your head down and not make a fuss, right? And complaining about anything is probably really frowned upon. Do you think all of this was just plain carelessness? Or do you think there is some campaign against him?
It must be hard to be the new kids, but you would think they would be so used to people coming and going, they would have some kind of program (besides the All Hail and Farewell) to make sure new people are actually welcomed and assimilated, besides giving them crappy jobs and not talking to them at events. That seems like it would be better for morale.
I moved, on average, every 6 months as a kid until I was in high school, even though my family wasn't military. So I know what it's like to always be the new kid. It's not fun. And I know how people can either be welcoming or not. It makes a huge difference.
