On April 29, 2010 Navy Secretary Ray Mabus and then Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Gary Roughead moved forward with an ambitious plan to integrate female officers on submarines and other naval vessels. Nearly a year later, the CNO issued a naval instruction permitting Navy detailers to assign female officers to a wide-array of surface vessels and designated submarines.
