Nineteen

The number of women selected to participate in the Navy's nuclear submarine training program.



Lisa Brodsky, a recent Hampton University (a historically and predominantly Black college & university) graduate and Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) midshipman, is one of the first 19 females in the nation selected to train for service aboard a U.S. Navy submarine.

Bravo Zulu !! Pictured below are some of the other female NROTC midshipmen chosen for the program.

I would go to sea with ANY of them but would prefer to go to sea with ALL of them.

I think they will do fine as long as they embrace truth and tradition.
There is no privacy and to expect it will endanger the crew and ruin moral. Don't let political correctness define your career or ruin our Navy.
Earn your dolphins and your place, this isn't like a skimmer or an aircraft where you can act alone. Sub and sailor are one.
