Former Navy petty officer Sherry Lynne White, 26, has been discharged from the Navy for dropping anchor — and all her clothes — in the September issue of Playboy. “I felt I wasn’t doing anything wrong by posing,” the 8-year Navy veteran (who was scheduled to be released from duty on Oct. 31) told the Associated Press. “I’m not making the Navy look bad by having those pictures there.” Said a Navy spokesman, “It was best that she pursue her career outside the military.”
