    I don't believe I've seen this posted elsewhere here. Apologize if I missed it.

    The Navy plans to make two Virginia-class subs all female. Not a joke.

    PLEASE, let us keep any discussion ON TOPIC and CIVIL. Thank you.

    Oh my. The 21st Century has arrived. Who would have thought they would have made All-Female crews? How innovative.

    Imagine a CPO who chose Subs to get away from his wife and her mother - wonder if she read the article - :eek:

    Lt. Hanne Bright's quote at the end of the article: "Move over, sailor."

    My bet is they will blow the other subs out of the water...no pun intended, but the last thing anyone should ever do is make a women feel like she can't do it!:shake:

    G*d Bless America for allowing this...and remember the statement you said when you were 10 yrs old...SHE SANK MY BATTLESHIP!:yay:

    OKAY...we still love you guys !

    OKAY let's get real...we knew it was a joke ...seriously, how stupid can we be...the NAVY has no sub with a woman on it, but yet they decided to hand over a multi million dollar sub to someone with no experience...We are good at givining directions, but I don't think we are that good:shake:

    you blew the cover off the story too soon! There weren't quite enough sexist views expressed yet - :wink:

    I'll be damned! They finally went and did it! :eek:

    If it works (and why wouldn't it?), why not?

    Operation Petticoat comes full circle! :biggrin:



    ETA: Oh, drat. It's a fake? :frown:

    Luckily nothing would change, 100 sailors would go on, and 50 couples would come off.
