    Personally, I'm troubled by mixing women and men on a submarine for the safety of the women. But unless they do some kind of officer exchange so some of our female naval officers can serve on submarines with foreign crews that already have mixed-gender or all-female sub crews, it's the only way women will get the experience they need.

    Navy outlines plans to put women in sub crews - Navy News, news from Iraq - Navy Times

    The first 19 women to serve aboard subs will be selected this summer, and will likely be officers new to the Navy, according to the Navy’s guidelines for bringing women into the undersea service. An additional eight female supply officers will be eligible to join the ranks late next year.

    The guidelines, issued by Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Gary Roughead, came in conjunction with Thursday’s official announcement of women being cleared to serve aboard submarines. The change was considered by Congress after Defense Secretary Robert Gates formally presented a letter to congressional leaders Feb. 19 notifying them of the Navy’s desire to reverse the male-only policy.
    WHen ever there is a group of enlisted men around a woman on a sub they can say she has seamen all over her. Or maybe some of the females nickname will be choo choo or doorknob.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I support women and men serving together on submarines. This is an important moment for the Navy.

    So, does that mean that men who are surrounded by other men on a submarine also enjoy being covered with seamen?
