Three of the U.S. military's first female submariners have earned their dolphin pins, signifying that they have met all of the requirements to serve on subs, one year after the Navy began allowing women to do so.
"Qualifying is a huge accomplishment for any submariner, and it feels no different for me," Lt. Noonan said in statement released by the Navy. "I am thrilled to finally be a member of this elite community. I'm particularly grateful to my crew, officers and enlisted for supporting me and holding me to the same standards as those who have gone before me."
