Been on the ship less than a week. Back on the fantail with the chief bo'sun watching the bo'suns work on the ropes. This E-3 throws a marlin spike at a 1st class, hitting him in the back. 1st class turns to him tells him 'don't do that again', and goes back to his work. Couple minutes later the E-3 throws a BIG eyebolt at the 1st class. He gets up, walks over, slugs him, knocks down, sits on him, and starts beating him.
I turn to the chief 'shouldn't we do something about that?'
Chief watching this says 'no, he enjoys it.'
'What?'
'He enjoys pain. He's a masochist.'
'Okay.'
In a little bit the 1st class stands the kid up and walks him down to the medic.
I remember thinking this is going to an interesting deployment.

This kid could pull some crap too. for example, he'd disappear for 2, 3, 4 days at a time. On one of the smallest ship-of-the-line, and out in the middle of the ocean. He did this several times. The captain would turn the ship to, to search for him, but we never found him. Days later he'd show up at morning muster, like nothing happened.

He wasn't allowed to re-up, and was given medical discharge.
