Should be fine I think. G.I. Jane comes true!
Good luck training with the SEALS.
The training is tough sure... heck I'm pretty sure even most of the men that try out get cut... if a gal can do it, might as well let them. I'd wash out getting a paper cut filling out a form.
Long overdue, IMO. Seems like a move in the right direction, provided that standards aren't lessened in any shape or form just to meet some arbitrary ratio.
Oh. I agree whole heartily . If they can handle the fire they would be standing in along with the men then they deserve it.
But I know from personal experience that 25 out of 30 don't make it all the way through the process.
Look at the US Government moving closer and closer to the 20th Century.
This is going to be hard...for all involved but they/we will get through it
That's very interesting, had no idea that was coming. It'll be interesting to see how it turns out.
I noticed it in 2003, you'd go onto AKO and the biggest forum debate was always should we allow women in the Infantry..
It had to break at some point there are just too many superstar female soldiers to my Infantry a boys club.
The real question here is are we going to finally make women register for the draft?
A welcomed but largely irrelevant move, for I fear at some the fighting is going to be done by machines, either controlled remotely or fully autonomous.
I'd rather see the draft registration eliminated altogether.
It will never work. Women are the weaker sex. They are far better suited to be a teacher.
Oh yeah, and to be armed and expected to be able to stop crazies from shooting up schools with semi-automatic weapons.
me too, actually, but if it's going to stay, I think women need to be included.
Will women be able to fly drones into combat? Or do they do that already?
Combat's not pretty:
Neither is pregnancy.
The fact is, there are men who wouldn't be able to deal with that either. Why not give everyone the opportunity?
I'm glad the infantry is going to be left out..
There are plenty of women that can handle the job, I'm sure we can get over the hygiene issues also.
I guess I need to get in touch..
And what does that have to do with women in combat?
This is good, as long as they keep the standards the same and don't set the bar lower for women to get in than men so they can get more women.
Completely agree. They aren't lowering the standards so if a woman is able to get through that training I see nothing wrong with this.
There's a reason why females aren't in combat roles. But, I'm not against it. Combat Support has females in it (ie: medics, MP's) and they deploy and go out of the wire.
I was going to say great. I do undestand that this is a mile stone in equal rights.
But i wish instead of women getting geting a chance to experince combat, that nobody had to go through that man or woman. (Or drone)
Just like there was a reason gays weren't allowed to serve in the military?
What reason would that be? And surely you realize that there are other countries where women do serve in combat?
