The following is a guest post from one such officer, a Lieutenant in the Surface Warfare community who has opted to remain anonymous for professional reasons. You now are the newest Ensign in the United States Navy, heading to a warship of your choice. There have been many advances in both the Navy and the American culture over the years. Unfortunately there are many junior officers who commit this crime, some unknowingly.Just keep in mind that there are some behaviors or actions that women officers must be aware of to be viewed as competent professionals.
