PEARL HARBOR (NNS) — This month marks the 22nd annual observance of Women’s History Month during which a grateful nation celebrates the many notable contributions made by women.

The female Sailors of the USS O’Kane (DDG 77) are among the many dedicated Sailors not only committed to their work, but also to serving their country.

Cmdr. Timothy Steadman, O’Kane commanding officer, took this opportunity to expressed his gratitude for the daily contributions of women as part of O’Kane’s crew.

“They are just fantastic,” he said. “This ship wouldn’t be where it is right now without them. They are in every single division, every department, and they are all excellent Sailors doing a great job for us,” he added.


Please watch this space. We’re trying to come up with History Months for other genders.
