Life aboard a fast-attack submarine can be rough: Quarters are cramped, operations are hectic and privacy is just a memory, veteran submariners say.
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.
Marquette Leveque, 25, said that serving with two other women and 150 men undersea for six months was basically a "nonevent."
"The biggest change I think was [the men] just getting used to female voices around, and I mean that in a very positive way," said Lt. Leveque, a native of Fort Collins, Colo.
