Two women could enter Navy special operations training this year | Navy Times

Two years after the Navy’s elite special warfare operating billets were opened to women, the service could be on the verge of seeing their first female candidates step up to the challenge.

That’s what Vice. Adm. Robert P. Burke told the Senate Armed Services Personnel Subcommittee during his Feb. 14 testimony.

Burke and other service personnel chiefs were asked to give Senator Kirstin Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) an update on the participation of women in billets that, until recently, were closed to them.
