Enlisted Women in Submarines

Navy Personnel Command > Enlisted > Community Managers > Submarine > Enlisted Women in Submarines

On June 22, 2015, the Navy announced the selections of the first enlisted female submariners and on August 2, 2016 the    first enlisted female submariner earned her submarine “dolphins.” The integration of female Sailors into the Submarine      Force opens positions to a wider pool of skilled military personnel and provides commanders flexibility for multiple future   combat scenarios. High-caliber female Sailors from all communities and ratings are afforded the opportunity to make      history and be among the first to join the Submarine Service. Integrated submarines include SSGN Submarines in Bangor,  WA, and Kings Bay, GA. Future integrations are planned for select Virginia Class SSNs and SSBNs.
The application process is an ongoing detailed process that will systematically place enlisted female Sailors on all      above-mentioned submarines. Applications are now being processed on a continuous basis. Since available rating quotas  will be filled as applications are processed, it is recommended that interested sailors submit applications as soon as    possible. Further information on the application requirements and process can be found in NAVADMIN 159/19. The EWIS  Brief has been updated with information for applicants and CCCs.  It will provide information about the Submarine Force    and answer questions about the application process.
Any further questions should be directed to the Submarine Enlisted Community Manager office.
