Funny there was a woman on National TV this morning who said:
"I as a woman could not do the job in combat". She went on to say she let her male coworkers down even thou she thought she was up to the demands of combat she wasn't.
To think in time of war you could draft women and men and press them into training and combat is just silly.
The combat sections of the military are NOT civil places with a place for the weaker sex, Thye have NO BUSINESS in a combat role. Ya they can work in some narrow nitch MOSes but what they contribute will always be overshadowed by the negatives caused by the presence of females in the barraks or fox holes, new meaning for the term.
Oh yes there are women who would step up in the service to "service" every man interested and that would be but ONE problem with having the weaker sex in military combat.
Anyone proposes such foolishness has clearly NEVER fought in close ground combat.
you obviously did NOT study your history.
.
women have been in combat. some of those women helped to free America from England during the Revolution. some were working the cannons. helping to load and to shoot. back then thought of as only a man's job.
http://www.va.gov/VETDATA/docs/SpecialReports... Some women distinguished themselves on the battlefield for the
Continental Army. For example, Margaret Corbin and Mary McCauley, who was
a heroine in the Battle of Monmouth in 1778 and thought to be the model for the
legendary Molly Pitcher, fought in the Battle of Fort Washington in 1776 (Holm,
pp.3-4). Later during the Civil War, at least 400 women on both sides of the
conflict disguised themselves as men and assumed combat roles alongside men.
.
thousands of years women have fought in combat.
.
http://www.history.com/news/u-s-military-lift... Boudicca
After the death of her husband left their kingdom of Iceni (now Norfolk, England) at the mercy of the corrupt Emperor Nero, Queen Boudicca led a rebellion against the Roman Empire in A.D. 60. Her army wreaked havoc in Roman Britain, defeating the Roman Ninth Legion and destroying the capital at Colchester, as well as Verulamium (St. Albans) and Londinium (London).
.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/articl... In spite of examples such as Joan of Arc or Boudicca, the enduring myth in the Western world is that men are the warriors while women stayed meekly at home.
But the belief that women are the peacemakers while men are more likely to be warmongers is not borne out by history, a new study claims.
Research shows records have airbrushed women soldiers out of history as they do not fit the prevailing notion of men as protectors and women as weak
.
.
thing is, there is a SEAL who believes that there are some women capable of being SEALS http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/female-navy-sea... The top commander of U.S. special operations says he thinks it's time for women to go into combat as Navy SEALS.
A Navy SEAL himself, Admiral Eric T. Olson said at the opening session of the 2011 Aspen Security Forum that he would like to see female SEALs in combat roles.

WHAT JOBS CAN WOMEN APPLY FOR IN THE NAVY?

Women are free to apply for and hold any job in the Navy. However, by law there are two communities that women are not allowed to join: the Navy SEAL and Navy SWCC communities. Also, due to privacy and living space considerations, women may not apply for Enlisted positions aboard submarines.

Hi!

If anyone, male or female, meets the training and standards they should serve. If they don't, male or female, they shouldn't.

You mentioned the Viet Cong. In post #25 someone was telling about a Viet Cong woman that drew the attention of the US Army to the point they sent a Ranger team after her. I figure that means she was very good at what she did ..... fighting in war.

You put the word 'enlisted'. In a way that's a bit misleading. As of nearly three years ago women have been on submarines as officers. The Navy has stated there have been no problems and it's worked out well.

Do you know who one of the world greatest kill teams are? Kidon, that's the Israeli Mossad's assassination unit. About half are women. If the women in it can stand up to the stress of infiltration, working deep uncover, murder, and the necessary escape without being caught they can stand up to anything.

I didn't put any words into my post. All those words come directly from the official U.S. Navy WEB site. I just cut and pasted the info, I did that because there are many feeble internet users who can't figure out how to find stuff on the internet.

It will be interesting to observe the Navy's rules and see if female EM will be allowed on subs and in the SEALS going forward. Close quarters on subs will make it difficult to have mixed genders. Maybe they can be separated for sleeping.

One must not forget an all time record for suicides was set in the military in 2012. Obama's new military, will it improve with mixed gender?

Only time will tell.

Did you catch the part about women are already on submarines? Also about women have been in combat situations for several years in the middle-east, which means they serve along with and among male soldiers? Do you know we can even vote now?

Only female officers are allowed on subs. NO females are allowed in the SEALS.

Did you read that on the Navy WEB site?

Can you read?

heck, we don't even need a male to cosign for a loan if we women want to buy a house for ourselves these days.
.
unlike a friend of mine when she bought her house 30 years ago. bank wouldn't let her buy unless she had a male relative cosign it for her. she ended up having to have her brother be the one. even though he didn't live there.
