Navy women see slow-but-steady rise in ranks
from Stars and Stripes
Nora Tyson didn't imagine herself in the Navy when she graduated from college in 1979, let alone that she would be a trailblazer for women in the service. But last year, Rear Adm. Nora Tyson became the first woman to command a carrier strike group. For Navy women who have come before her, Tyson's command of the USS George H.W. Bush carrier strike group is a big deal, another step in a slow-yet-steady plod toward a more gender-neutral Navy.
