    Absolutely right. My parents never struck us, either. One "look" from my mom and everyone knew the drill. :D

    Yes, your ex was in the Navy (Officer or Enlisted?), but some will say that a person has to be "in" a Service to really understand the discipline involved, like going thru Basic Training. Actually, Navy Enlisted Basic Training is really easy compared to Basic Training in the Army or Marines...…….where a Drill Instructor can (will) get right in the face of a Recruit and yell at them.
