The Navy has extended the April deadline for female enlisted sailors to apply to convert to submarine force ratings. Sailors ranks E-1 through E-8 now have until June 1 to submit their applications, according to a Navy release.
This is the fourth round of applications for female sailor conversion to submarine force non-nuclear ratings. Sailors selected in this round will be part of the initial integration of the Ohio-class submarine Georgia, and will fill positions on the previously integrated subs, Florida and Michigan.
Female sailors from all communities are eligible to apply for submarine service as part of this initiative.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, so interested sailors are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. Sailors can expect to receive a decision within one to two months of submitting their application.
