    How much time and money should be wasted before finding one that can? And if you do, what about the problems she will create when assigned to a combat platoon? What then?

    It's a completely valid argument. What you want places soldiers in unnecessary risks.

    LOL. Ignoring what happens in the real world of a combat unit has "no substance"? LOL.

Do you not realize that being in a controlled school environment is the absolutely easiest time a person spends in the military when compared to being assigned to a combat unit? It only gets harder, much harder, both physically and mentally in the real environment of such units.
    Let me guess. You don't have much of a college degree, but you played sports in school. Did I guess right?

    Of course, being how easy school is, certainly you should have at least 1 PhD. Do you?

    Where's that "private" place located that other platoon members may not stumble across? And just as I thought, you would not say a female should be prohibited from filing some kind of a sex charge against a dude doing just what you proposed.

    LOL. You don't even know what a PX is and you type stuff out in this thread? LOL.

    I was referring to your post #264, which was further explained by Fallen Angel in post #268 regarding the IDf's rules, which indicated that women were not allowed to serve in combat, although they were in various combat units.

    The one Israeli combat unit has only been in one fire fight since it was organized, so there's no baseline to go off. However, there is a baseline, when you look at the previous IDF policy that kept women out of combat arms units. Integrating femakes into the IDF is more out of necessity than anything else.

    If you don't like that way Ford builds it's pickup trucks these days, don't buy one.

    If you don't like the direction the US Military is heading. Don't sign up.

    Both are 100% voluntary.

    Don't like it, don't volunteer for it.

    Simple as that.
