    Re: Navy will soon let women serve on subs

    There are problems every day with men and women serving together aboard a Navy Combatent.......The average age of the typical enlisted person aboard ship in nineteen and that is the age when the juices are flowing.....there are to many places aboard a ship for hanky panky and it goes on.......

    Prior to women serving aboard combatants this was never a problem....God knows there were enough problems already and now you add another to it........

    Officers and Chiefs are afraid to complain on the record for fear of their careers being ruined... Off the record they will tell you that women on combatants has been a miserable failure..........

    I am going to get slammed by the PC people now but if you know anything about the subject in your heart of hearts you know I am right.........

    Women serving "on" long, hard, objects that go really "deep," and that are populated by semen. Er, I mean, seamen.

    This is fantastic material.

I mean, they were at least allowed to walk through the door, so that makes it all a-ok.

    Gimme a ****ing break. Jesus, I may as well be talking to my nephew for all the comprehension you're displaying here.
    That's not true. Where do you get that from? The Navy was integrated before the Civil War. Blacks were serving all manner of positions since the Rev War; infantry, artillery, cavalry, engineers.

    Black artillerists during WW2.


    Black cavalrymen of the 10th US Cavalry. AKA, "Buffalo Soldiers". John "Blackjack" Pershing commanded the 10th. He was given the nickname, "Blackjack", because of his service with the 10th during the Span-Am war.



    The 54th Mass. attacking Fort Wagner.


    Black engineers from the 23rd Engineer Regiment. See the guy in the center rear of the photo that is wearing the cap rather than a campaign hat? Yeah, he's an officer and he's black. I'm not sure of the time period for the photo, but it's definitly prior to 1948.


    Why is it that alotta folks are so historically challenged?

    It's the history books these days. You learn factoids, nothing else. No nuances. Everything must be able to fit onto one line, usually in one sentence.

    Consider what would show up on a test....

    When were blacks integrated?

    A: 1948
    B: 1999
    C: Yesterday
    D: 1917
    E: 1776

    or...

    When were blacks integrated?

    A: A description of your post
    B: Equally Long Answer
    C: Ect
    D: Ect
    E: Ect

    Obviously, only the most advanced classes attempt to take on nuances. Otherwise, nah, history books these days try to keep it simple.

    Re: Navy will soon let women serve on subs

    I'm not sure if this has been brought up in this thread, I just jumped in and read only a few posts..

    Anyways, I used to work around submariners, guarding, loading and shipping nuclear weapons. I was in the Marines, stationed at a sub base.


    Here's an interesting fact NCIS told us, and it is one I wonder how will play in to the current situation. Submariners, especially those who deploy on the boomers (deep diving, long duration under water, nuclear armed subs) have BY FAR the highest rates of child pornography charges pressed against them. NCIS didn't go in to any theories as to why it is as prevalent in that community as it is, but I'm sure you guys could think of a couple.

    Anyways, women on subs is just as bad as an idea as women serving in the infantry, albeit for mostly different reasons.

    And if you get shot and need to be carried to saftey which is 1/2 a click away and all your 190 lbs has to carry it is a 110 lbs female you might feel different.
    President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."

    Hows about the other way around? Your female squad mate gets shot and all YOUR ass has to carry is her 110 pounds...As if a female who could pass the standards for a infantry squad would only weigh 110 pounds...But still, you get my point.



    Plus, what if you have a potential spine injury...Are your squad mates going to toss you over their shoulder or create a makeshift stretcher? Then two people have to carry you anyway...Of course, depending on the possiblity of further combat developing...

    I'm not sure who you talked to or when, but boomers only average about 77 days out to sea. Then they usually come back in for a little over a month for maintenance, and switch crews. They have a blue and a gold crew. That means that out of every six months, a boomer crew is only out to sea for maybe a little over two months on average. This is a big reason why many married guys who have volunteered for subs will go for a boomer. They get to spend more time with their wives.

    *As a note, what I posted I found on the net. Just so no one thinks that I am putting out classified info.
