KINGS BAY, Ga. — Two local sailors have been discharged from the military after being accused of creating a sexually explicit list of women with whom they serve.
According to the U.S. Navy, sailors on board a Navy submarine ranked female crew members by their attractiveness and shared lewd and inappropriate comments about the women. The Navy said the sailors had a list of 32 women onboard. The submarine was only the second to include women.

The Navy said it has completed audits and assessments, held seminars and updated its policy. It said, “The crew and leadership have performed well and corrective actions have been effective.”
The discovery of the sexually explicit list follows a 2014 scandal involving female officers on another Kings Bay submarine who were secretly recorded while they undressed.
The Navy said additional administrative actions were taken against other members of the command for their mishandling of the report. The commanding officer was discharged.
