More females on ships
The Coast Guard, which only last year began allowing
women on sea duty, has announced new policies that will
put even more females on ships.
Coast Guard Commandant John B. Hayes said the ser
vice no longer will have any restrictions based solely on
sex to govern the training, assignment and career oppor
tunities of its personnel.
Under the new policy , all female graduates of the Coast
Guard academy, as the males, will be assigned to sea duty
for their initial tours as commissioned officers.
Mixed-sex crews will also be assigned to any unit,
afloat or ashore, that can provide reasonable privacy for
each sex in sleeping and personal hygiene, Hayes said.
The Coast Guard also said women would now be allowed
to train for ratings such as gunners mate, fire control
technician and sonar technician, all fields from which
until now they had been excluded.
