We now have a woman submariner! The first woman has pinned on the dolphin qualification badge.
When I was growing up, I loved reading and watching anything about submarines and undersea. I checked out submarine books from the library—Admiral Rickover’s book on the first nuclear submarine, and Robb White’s novels. Even the movie tie in for Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (which is quite different from the movie that aired).
Submarines are just cool. Nothing like seeing one burst up out of the water on an emergency blow. Of course, I’ve only seen that on TV, but it’s still cool.
By the way, she’s enlisted, and a cook.
