Not a combat deployment, but
Yesterday, we asked readers to identify what obviously appears to be missing in news photos of the military's Haiti relief effort to date. Here are typical photos showing U.S. troops delivering supplies and rations in Haiti. Reminded me of loadouts on our longer, submarine deployments.
The Haiti relief effort is definitely NOT a combat operation. So, where are any females, who can do the work of men?
Looks like U.S. submarines getting female crew members had better not expect much help from their women with pre-deployment stores load outs. Ever had to get underway fast? Those load outs were an all-hands (not on watch) evolution. Hmmm!
Submarines are always silent and strange.
