Mlitary.com honors and remembers the fallen.
The Enlisted Women in Submarines (EWIS) task force wants everyone to know that the doors are being opened to enlisted women to become submariners. Eligible E-8-and-below female Sailors, from all communities and rates, can cross-rate, if rating eligible, or convert into the submarine community. Chief petty officers within the logistics, yeoman, information technology, culinary, and hospital corpsman ratings are also being offered conversion to submarines. Ohio-class guided and ballistic missile submarines are currently being integrated, one crew at a time. Integration of female crew members aboard fast-attack submarines will begin in 2016.
