Navy women reach new heights
By Ed O'Keefe
By The Post's Lisa Rein:
The submarine school in Groton, Conn., will include 19 women this year, the first group since the Navy lifted its ban on women serving on submarines.
On Thursday, the Navy reached another milestone, when women swept the annual Sailor of the Year awards for the first time.
Their achievement was marked by meritorious promotions to chief petty officer in a ceremony at the Navy Memorial in Washington, with their families and commanders proudly looking on as chief's anchors were penned to the lapels of their khakis. The four sailors of the year were chosen from the enlisted fleet of 273,226. Every year they are feted in Washington, whisked with their families from museum to monument during a week of kudos and congratulations from Navy brass.
