The present NAPS class also includes 332 males. Graduation exercises for the group is scheduled May 19. Midshipman candidates Hernandez and Buxbaum will be berthed on the first deck of Nimitz Hall, the same building where the other NAPS students are berthed, and will wear the standard Navy uniform for enlisted women.

The ruling also has the support of President Ford.
