“the USS Let’s MOOOOVE”

Sponsor this sub? Does that mean she is funding it from her own pocket?

More divisive crap from the divider in chief. Now can we look forward the first all homo crew, the first all black crew, etc....”

That's going to get pretty expensive. They'll have to create two classes of this particular sub. One that fires torpedoes and one that catches torpedoes.

They will save money on construction because the USS Barack will only have aft tubes.

OK, that one got to me. That is the funniest and most appropriate name!

It will be interesting to see if they can pass the Damage Control Requirements required for all crewmen for submarine duty.

I bet they waive them as being to ‘gender’ specific as regards to upper body strength.

Several of you asked what it means to sponsor the sub.

Michelle Obama, the ship sponsor, will provide remarks and authenticate the keel by chalking her initials onto a metal plate. Her initials will then be welded to the plate, which will be permanently affixed to the submarine.

Here

Instead of initials, how about using the chalk to outline her.....never mind.

I just looked up where we are on women and subs and found out that the most sub experience any of the crew will have is 18 months.

Would any of you submariners go near it?

Everything the Obamas touch turns to shit. Pray that this boat doesn't pull a Thresher.

So, what would be the female equivalent of a “Crazy Ivan”?

The USS Illinois, SSN-786, is under construction.

But this is BS about an all female crew.

An initial pre-commissioning crew began forming in June 2013. They are not all female.

The Keel laying just occurred and Michelle Obama is the sponsor...but the crew which is already working with the builder is not all female.

Here is the link to the Bio of the prospective pre-commissioning skipper of the boat, Commander Jess Parker.

The crew that will man the vessel after launch will definitely not be all female.

Thanks. Maybe the UK reporter assumed all the female sailors in the photo at the WH equaled all-female crew.

So in all fairness, I wonder what the ladies of this site would name an all-male sub in this new age? Suggestions ladies? :-)

pick a name, any name, because right now all of them that were named before 2012 were all-male subs

how about the “USS size-matters”
