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:

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.
cool idea... but...

just think what'll happen if 1/2 of them all hit that "special happy time of the month" at the same time...

:zip: :eek: :help: :wow: :hammer: :stretcher: :yikes:

"This is way overdue," insists Lt. Hanne Bright, an up and coming naval officer. She is among 340 female officers and chiefs who have been selected to initiate an abrupt change in Navy policy; the manning of submarines by women.
Lt. Hanne Bright's quote at the end of the article: "Move over, sailor."

I love that line!

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:

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

Operation Petticoat comes full circle! :biggrin:

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