    Re: Navy will soon let women serve on subs

    This subject came up before at the submarine base here at Bangor and the wives of the guys on the subs wanted no part of it.....When it comes to controversial issues the Navy is very sensitive to the feelings of the families of the men who are serving............I believe this will become a major obstacle to women serving on submarines.......

    It's a strange position for me, I'll admit. But the fact is that if standards are upheld in choosing women for these jobs it is unfair to prevent them from serving.

    I agree with the bolded portion of your text.

    The Chiefs are also on this level. The Goat Locker has twelve bunks, one head with one toilet, one shower, one sink.

    The junior officers bunks and Wardroom are on this level, they share one head, with one toilet, one shower, and I can't recall if their two-man bunkrooms have sinks or not.

    The XO and the CO are berthed in staterooms just forward of the Control Room.

    Over 100 men, E-6 and below, share four toilets, one urinal, three showers and four sinks.

    There ZERO facilities for split-tails.

    Got it, people?



    Nah, there's the sleeping and hygeine issues there, as well.
    Another reason that I went Air Force -- I have to give you Sub Swabbies credit for being able to put up with those conditions. So an aircraft carrier must be like going club Med if someone has experienced Subs - I would think !!

    Which is probably why most new enlistees start out on a Carrier, so they can be eased slowly into the idea of tight cramped spaces.

    *proof-reads the last*

    Hmm

    Does anyone else notice the opportunities for sexual innuendo in that statement?

    Maybe it's just my dirty mind again...
