USS REUBEN JAMES Celebrates Women’s History Month 
At Sea (March 22, 2013) - Lieutenant Amy Hunt spoke to the crew of the USS REUBEN JAMES for Women’s History Month. “A lot of great information on women’s contributions to our country and especially our armed forces get overlooked in history class, which is why it’s so important to take the time to focus on women’s history.”
LT Hunt stressed the importance of recognizing those whose dedication led to such great strides in science and technology, as well as the armed forces.
“Women’s role in the armed services is continually expanding,” Said Commander Daniel Valascho, USS REUBEN JAMES Commanding Officer, “Women service members have shown their willingness and ability to serve in the United States military, and I am proud to serve alongside them.”
The Celebration of Women’s History Month was topped off with a cake cutting ceremony.
REUBEN JAMES is on a routine deployment to Seventh Fleet Area of Responsibility and will decommission this summer after 27 years of service.
