Operation Take One for the Country
image Operation Take One for the Country (or OTOFTC) has been getting a lot of publicity lately. It claims to be "a movement of like-minded women (women predominantly as of right now) who have covertly organized into groups to frequent eating and drinking establishments near armed service bases where troops are preparing to ship out overseas, and take one for the country, so to speak." In other words, they pick up soldiers in bars and sleep with them. This has been generating a lot of cries of hoax. For instance, Single Southern Guy notes that there's a transcript of a radio interview with two of the OTOFTC participants on the site, but the radio station that supposedly conducted this interview doesn't appear to exist. My thoughts on this? First, even if it's not real, this will obviously immediately inspire 'Operation Pretend You're a Soldier.' Second, women sleeping with departing soldiers certainly lies well within the realm of possibility. The real question is whether it's being done on an organized basis with entire sororities and the like participating, as this site claims. That seems less likely. Sure, some women may joke that they're participating in OTOFTC, but that doesn't really constitute a covertly organized movement. It seems more likely that this is a cute idea that someone is using to sell some t-shirts and bumper stickers.

They make a huge deal on their website about being as discrete as possible, but yet they are trying to sell t-shirts. Definitly a hoax.

This is funny, Have you ever been in a military town in a few bars? Girls Galore. G.I.s are big spenders in the clubs and can blow a whole check in a single night on booze and food alone.
Young Party Babes flock to these areas for the party.
I don't advise these Girls to go that way, Most of the ahem... Cats are pretty protective of their territory, the G.I.s are even worst.

I was listening to the radio this morning here in Dallas http://www.kdge.com/ and they were interviewing a "Christy" who was organizing a group here. She was supposedly starting a group on yahoo. Go figure. Maybe this hoax is turning into inspiration for people!
