    That your viewpoint doesn't mesh with my reality is your problem. Not mine.

    I said what needed saying.

    Now... back to the regularly scheduled program.

    You have still posted nothing at all.
    What part of them not being as adaptable or efficient as whites did you miss? or that segregation on board ship was not feasible?

    She was a staff member, not a serving line officer in a combat arms unit.

    She admitted that she was the CASO. That isn't a line position.

    Integration of women in the IDF

    In part: Integration of women in the IDF March 2009


    There has been a clear trend of increase in the participation of women in the different military sectors. Today, women represent a third of all IDF soldiers, and can be deployed in 90 percent of all positions within the IDF. These statistics were published by the IDF Women’s Affairs Advisor, Brig. Gen. Yehudit Grissaro, on Sunday (March 8), in celebration of International Women's Day. Brig. Gen. Grissaro also announced that women represent 26 percent of all officers and 12 percent of all NCOs, and women are able to serve in 10 different combat positions.

    Today women constitute 20% of career officers and 33% of compulsory service personnel, as opposed to 31% in 1995. In addition, there has been a moderate increase in the representation of women in every rank in the IDF. The percentage of women lieutenant colonels increased from 7% to 12.5%.

    Women represent a significant portion of manpower in the combat units that they serve in; in the Anti-Aircraft Division and in the Artillery Corps, women represent 20 percent of soldiers, 25 percent of soldiers in Search and Rescue units, 10 percent of the Border Police, and the Caracal Battalion - a combat battalion - is made up of 70 percent female soldiers. In addition, this year marked the first year in which women are eligible to serve in the Field Intelligence Corps.

    What are they calling a "combat position"?

    Are you suggesting they are mis-classified as combat positions?

    Geez.
    Everybody at battalion and brigade has a weapon. No big deal. You said you were a CAS officer. Care to show us your order of battle and point out where CAS officers operate with line units? Thanks in advance.

    The US military has females serving in AAA units. A female serving in corps arty isn't exactly a combat position.

    Just because a female serves in a, "combat unit", doesn't mean she is in a direct combat MOS, such as infantry, or armor, or sappers.
