The Navy has established four new ratings for enlisted submariners. They are: Yeoman (Submarine) (YNS); Logistics Specialist (Submarine) (LSS); Culinary Specialist (Submarine) (CSS); and Fire Controlman (Aegis) (FCA). In a service-wide announcement, the Navy Personnel Command said the YNS, LSS and CSS ratings recognized “special skills” that distinguish the jobs from comparable ones elsewhere in the fleet. The FCA rating will pave the way for a training and education path different from that available to other fire controlmen, the Navy stated.
