I am not so sure that it is time to uncork the champagne bottle.there might be isolated areas of female adapting to combat but it has never been used in war.even north Vietnam discouraged it. Folks I am all for equal rights but this is where line is drawn .even in biblical times females weren't used in combat.the male overall has different chemistry to handle combat situations. It has been proven time and time again in Korea Vietnam and before.in direct harsh environments the female has never been used for extreme combat situations. Nothing has changed except trying to convince they would handle combat like men.
