Navy Surveys Enlisted Women About Submarine Force

Posted April 8, 2014 at 5:27am

Stars and Stripes reports that “Navy officials are trying to gauge enlisted women’s interest in volunteering for the submarine force.”  

“Responses to an anonymous online survey, open to active-duty and reserve Navy servicewomen, will be used by a 60-person Navy task force. Headed by Rear Adm. Kenneth Perry, commander, Submarine Group Two in Groton, Conn., it was formed last June to develop options for integrating enlisted women into the submarine force.”  

“’We seek input from professional women sailors throughout our Navy, even if they aren’t interested in serving aboard submarines,’ said Perry, a career submariner. ‘Responses to the survey questions will help shape future Navy policy and are key to getting the integration right.’”
