Navy To Drop Bread And Water Punishment

A long-standing naval tradition comes to an end January 1st. That's when a boat's skipper will no longer be allowed to throw sailors in the brig with nothing but bread and water. It's been a valid punishment since back in the days of wooden ships. It's been watered-down a bit over the years, so to speak, to where a sailor can only be kept on bread and water for three days. A revision to the Uniform Code of Military Justice passed in 2016 goes into effect Tuesday, meaning that captains will have to find another punishment for troublesome sailors.
