Are these women ready for all the seamen?
As long as the Navy doesn’t give the billet to a “Horrible Holly” type.
She'll have the captains quarters in no time.
Someday, traveling to Obama’s grave site will be a great pilgrimage for real Americans.
We have much to show him by our emptying our bladders on his eternal resting place.
I'm old school... u cant put a women in a foxhole with a guy and expect them not to notice a difference in their down time....
Maybe some day..but we haven't evolved enough yet...
A nub ensign?
This is gonna work out well. /s
On a sub you have 90 some non comms and maybe 14 officers.
The CO and XO, Nav officer and the OOD get respect.
All the others better talk to the COB
0bama would sell the whole US Navy to the Chicoms if he could get away with it.
A male Lt is going to get a lesson, let alone a female ensign.
If junior officers get special treatment, it will ruin the way order is run on a submarine.
Expect lots of unplanned pregnancies sooner than later.
On a boat, senior enlisted men are respected.
This gal better not come in with something to prove.
That is the least of my concerns, but if there is any of that it will create major problems.
My main concern is that this very junior officer wont get the same temperament that others must have to effectively run a boat.
We’ll see what happens, but I don’t like it already.
Does she get her own shower?
90+ guys sharing 2 showers and some gal gets her own?
That’s gonna be an issue with folks enduring hardships.
This is such a load of $&%#!!!
I feel lucky that I never had to deal with the crap that comes along with women serving on combat ships. I got off my ship 2 months before they got their first women officers. Everyone on board was against it and I still have friends in the Navy who tell me it has never been the same. Women do not belong on combat ships and they absolutely positively do not belong on submarines.
The more this kind of stuff happens the more im convinced that this country has seen it’s best days.
Me brudder, on an LST and a destroyer tender in the 80s, saw his ship/shore rotation go from 3 years/3 years to 5 years/1 year after his rate was femalified because the Navys machine shop women at sea usually got as pregnant as possible as often as possible to get mandated shore berthing for birthing.
