    Did it go Lincoln, Washington, Stennis do you know? The Lincoln and Washington went on duty while I was in. I think Stennis was the one after.

    Yeah. The Stennis is the CVN-74 and is stationed in WA. In fact, looking at their website, it seems that they've been in-port for a good portion of the last 8 or 9 months. At the very least they haven't been out on a WestPac or other long cruise. So it's a good bet that those girls mentioned could easily have gotten pregnant while they were in port and not on the ship.

    The joke wasn't at your expense so i don't know what you're being all touchy about. In making the joke I addressed the topic just fine, which was the absurdity of the concept of preferring dying next a man or woman in combat when your death or capture is nearly guaranteed. Im careful as to what I write so things like that don't happen.

    that was my bad on the Stennis.....I should never make a mistake like that because after I retired from Navy I got a job working for The Naval Seas System Command and my main task was working with the planning and estimating funding for Air Craft Carrier Overhauls here at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard........

    Just as a side note, my favorite Aircraft Carrier is the CVN-76.

    All In all I really don't see why a woman can't serve on a sub. I mean I can see why it would create problems on the much smaller attack subs, but the large missile subs? I just can't see any reason.

    I mean I know I am against females serving in a ground combat MOS, but ships and aircraft? I just don't see any reason why not. You don't have to have high strength or even above average endurance in many positions on a sub or ship. As long as the woman is physically fit, I just don't see an issue.

    The sex thing is going to happen no matter where you are be it land based or on a ship. It is part of life in the military, get over it.

    I would also like to point out the video's Reddress pointed out. Good stuff.

    The one issue I can see, and the only one, is space for berthings. I suspect(and hope) that the decision was made with that detail in mind. I just cannot see the Navy brass not thinking of that detail, especially after the last 30 years of more and more women on ships.
