I say it is ok as long as the same test is given to our Congressmen and Senators. Since Obama is Commander and Chief he should be drug and alcohol tested too and with the same frequency as the Marines.(Same rules--No Notice). Where does this bull shit stop? Send a guy into Combat three years in a row and when he comes home and gets drunk the govt. says he has an alcohol problem. BULL SHIT! When will they quit invading the Military mans rights to get drunk and act like congressmen.

True! Politcians have the real problems and since they hold our future right in there hands, I think they need tested.

I am a former Marine. 13+years. I was frequently required to take a piss test. My last command I had 3 in one week several times. Didn't bother me except that the people requiring a whiz quiz was exempt. Why are the troops so special.

I can remember when the Officers were never drug testesd but I finally got to a 4 Star General and managed to get that changed. Several Officers caught first month.

We called it Golden Flow. Names were picked randomly by the lowest ranking orderly room clerk daily. Supervised picking was done by F/SGT and Commander at 8 AM each day. 10 people were picked 5 days a week in a 986 man Squadron.
