The role of women in the US Navy has come a long way since the first female recruits were accepted in 1942. Today, women make up nearly 20% of the Navy’s active-duty force and are found in a wide variety of roles and positions, including serving on aircraft carriers.
An aircraft carrier is a formidable weapon of war, measuring over 1,000 feet in length and carrying a crew of thousands. It is a floating city, complete with living quarters, medical facilities, and even a mini-mall. It is also a highly specialized, high-stress environment that requires the best from everyone who serves on it. This includes women. #aircraftcarrier #usnavy #sailors
