Just Because, that's why! Submarine's demonstration has stereotypical female tone

Becoming the third U.S. submarine reported to have sailed the Arctic so far this year, USS Texas (SSN- 775) completed an Arctic mission above the ice for more than 24 hours, because it can. Until then, some had foolishly believed Virginia-class subs had been ill-designed for arctic deployments.
Ens. James Robinson, the supply officer for the Texas, said in the Pacific Fleet release that on-ice activities included a re-enlistment for 12 crew members and a pinning ceremony during which one crew member received his submarine warfare qualification dolphins.

Rob Huebert, an Arctic specialist with the University of Calgary, said, [of Canada's leaders] They're moving pretty slowly while others are already expanding their operations in the North.


Submarines are always silent and strange.
