First Lady Michelle Obama has agreed to sponsor a future submarine named after her home state that will be staffed by an all-female crew.
The White House has announced that Mrs Obama has accepted an invitation to be the backer of the USS Illinois, a Virginia-class submarine being built in Groton, Connecticut, and Newport News, Virginia.
The new nuclear-powered boat is expected to join the fleet in late 2015.

No seamen on that sub.
A powered metal object, long, hard and without seamen and can go deep for days.... Hilary’s dream come true.
Six years ago the USA was on top of the world.
Now the entire world thinks we're insane clowns.
The USS Mad Cow!
So now the Navy is segregating by gender?
I don’t know what is happening in other branches of the service, but in the Coast Guard, white males face a four year waiting list for enlistment. If you are a female, Black, or Hispanic, no problem.
An all female crew on a sub-— even Israel doesn’t do this.
Just imagine (like in the dormitory study) when all the
menstruating crew synchronize their cycles.
SSN PMS Illinois. Tomahawks away!!
This idea is ridiculous, and is of a design to place Academy grads into line command in areas they CANNOT match performance with males. The jobs do require physical upper body strength, in maintenance,fire control, and many other areas including combat. Stupid good ship lollipop thinking.
The Silent Service cannot remain silent on this...certainly they will no longer be silent on patrol.
It’s not a video game at 600 feet. Recall the “command” of one real dyke Lt. Commander of an Aegis Class ship— she was completely nuts. And retired early at full retirement-.
Would she even fit in a submarine?
Interesting to watch — Get some popcorn
That was hilarious. I discovered that one a while back.
Hope the heads are designed for synchronization.
This should interesting...considering the way women tend to move in little clicks that wind up getting into cat fights over the littlest slight or wrong look...
Just wait until they start cycling at the same time and are too bloated or cramping to work...
Hot bunking should be interesting since women tend to be a bit anal about where and how their beds are made....
The ladies will need big torpedoes to qualify for crew.
USS not bossy.
yeah, and normally they’re filled with seamen...
Oops....looks like she’s losing the lunch wars so is making the pivot into sexual battles. These people are beyond sick.
My herd of cows all go into estrus at the same time. They synchronize. Bring a new cow into the herd and she falls in synch with the rest of the herd. Makes things easy for the bulls.
Don’t know why I said that, guess I was just thinking about cows.
