Penetta removes military ban on women in combat

99 posts in this topic

Rand was left wishing Hillary faking a concussion today instead of showing up

Thousands of Americans mutilated for life or dead thanks to a Republican administration intentionally lying to the American people/world about intelligence reports of WMD in Iraq. Sorry Rand Paul, Benghazi/4 dead, is not even close to the worst American tragedy since 9/11. You should be embarrassed to even spew such nonsense. Iraq was literally thousands of times worse.

Frontline combat is not suited for all people, regardless of gender. If there are women that want that challenge and can meet the same physical standards as the men, more power to them.

What's the % of men that fall out.

Only the fatasses at basic, and even they had some pride and kept going.

I always thought it was a logistics issue.

I've been on some outposts no bigger than a basketball court - no showers or latrines and the only available cover was a 20' shipping container that was a whole platoon's sleeping area.

We could barely get food and water. Imagine trying to bring in feminine hygiene items.

The ban is lifted, but nothing will change.

Military females will continue to constantly get pregnant, let train bangs be ran on them and yell rape; and generally contribute nothing, all the while avoiding deployments like the plague.

And yes, female standards for fitness are absurd. There was a thirty year old female in my unit who was a "freak of nature" for her "fitness". To make a perfect score on her pt test, she needed (roughly) 17 push ups, 30 sit ups, and run two miles in 20 minutes.

I swear to god you could break both of my arms and I could muster 17 push ups in two minutes. Most anyone could walk two miles in twenty minutes.

yeah bro women aren't actually being sexually assaulted at absurdly high rates in the military they're totally just making it up to really stick it to those poor defenseless men

We are going to need this because we can't get enough men if we get into the real poo, because they are all overweight these days. it's a problem the DoD has known about for years. Give me a fit chick over a XBox playing Cheeto eating Call of Duty dude anyday.

Yeah, this really only opens up 11B entirely. 31B (military police) have had women for a good long while now. The field duties have them in combat zones a lot anyway. 31B really is a combat MOS when you look at it. That's what I'm enlisting as, anyway. But I'm with you. As long as they meet the standards, I'm cool with it (and I know it can be done. I remember in high school there was a JROTC chick who was hot as hell, in crazy shape, and could knock out 78 pushups in 2 minutes). They fall short of the standards, they can try something else with their life.

Im 31B now, I know some hardcore chicks in my unit. But they still need to meet standard.
