Navy gives new urgency to retaining pregnant sailors

The Navy's most recent survey found 14 percent of all women in the Navy were single mothers in 2005, up from 11 percent in 2003 and 7 percent in 2001. Fourteen percent isn't unprecedented - similar statistics were found in 1989 and 1999 - but military officials say they don't know the reason for the recent increase.
