Women will begin serving on four U.S. submarines in December 2011, the U.S. Navy announced Thursday.
Twenty-four are in training to be the first women to serve aboard U.S. submarines, the Navy's Submarine Group 10 said in a statement. The subs on which they will deploy are the USS Wyoming and USS Georgia, both homeported in Kings Bay, Georgia, and the USS Ohio and USS Maine, homeported in Bangor, Washington.
The Navy said it will not identify the women until they have completed their submarine training. The 24, chosen from graduates of the U.S. Naval Academy, ROTC programs and Officer Candidate School, began their training in July, the military said.
Three women will serve aboard each sub at any one time, two as submarine officers and one as a supply officer. The subs have crews of 154. The Wyoming and Maine are ballistic-missile submarines and the Ohio and Georgia are armed with cruise missiles. Each of the submarines has two separate crews - known as the blue and gold crews - that rotate duty time so the subs can spend the maximum amount of time at sea.

Wait til they allow the first batch of homos into the next sub..
You think I'm kidding, I'm not.
Gays and women together. That could be a new sitcom.
Yeah...that’s real good thinking there, USN.
Another PC , disaster in the making, bureaucratic decision with absolutely no regard for common sense.
You would prefer they go down somewhere else?
P.S. On the article on CNN, my posts are made under 'The Impeccable Hat'.
The military has to dump this Freudian Marxist mindset. It is designed to destroy Western Civilization—the idea that there is no difference between a man and woman....is like saying there is no difference between a bull and cow. It is SUCH NONSENSE!!!!!!
They have been cowed by the feminist and homosexual movements to have no common sense—PC comes from cultural Marxism. The military has to refer to Natural Law Theory for their logic, reason and the science that would not only ban women from subs, it would ban open homosexuality.
We have to clean our institutions of the Marxist thinking if we are ever going to recognize this great country again.
They should give them their own boat.
100 women with PMS on a boat could be the meanest thing under the sea.
Googling this topic with shields down was a bad idea.
Are you sure you don't want to re-word that?
Sadly, the military in general is sacrificing common sense on the altar of political correctness.
Stupid Stupid Stupid on more than three levels
As if those Boomer wives don’t have enough to bitch about.
But, most of these women submariners will look like Rachel Maddow or at least that’s what their Husband’s will tell them.
Will they hot rack?
