In addition, this year marked the first year in which women are eligible to serve in the Field Intelligence Corps.


    The Border Police:

    Israel Defense Forces - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Other than the National Service (Sherut Leumi), IDF conscripts may serve in bodies other than the IDF in a number of ways. The combat option is Israel Border Police (Magav) service, part of the Israel Police. Some soldiers complete their IDF combat training and later undergo additional terror and Border Police training. These are assigned to Border Police units. The Border Police units fight side by side with the regular IDF combat units. They are also responsible for security in heavy urban areas such as Jerusalem.
    Sounds like combat to me.

    Fact: Males have greater upper body strength than females.
    Fact: The majority of black men and white men have the same upper body strength.
    Fact: Males have a different mindset than females. Men and women are wired differently.
    Fact: The majority of men are wired the same way as are females.

    You cannot compare race to sex in this case.

    Do you have anything else irrelevant to add?

    It's an all volunteer force. Why would someone not want to deploy?

    Are you certain you were in the military during Vietnam????

    I mean we have a little thing called deserters and it has been a problem since day 1. People don't want to deploy for a whole host of reasons.

    Sure as heck does to me. I think the women of those units would have something to say about being denigrated as non-combatants.

    Then any female police officer in the US would also be a combat veteran.

    No.

    And besides, it's an easy fix.

    Just require that females in the military take a pregnancy test each month, or something, and then you always know which of your female personnel are going to be available for deployment.

    This would be much less of an issue if someone gets that artificial womb invented…

    That was a draft Army and they stopped sending troops over there while I was still in training.

    Oh...lets see...they like the education benefits? The steady paychecks? the career opportunities? The access to healthcare? NOT wanting to be apart from family, babies, kids, loved ones? Thats a short list...

    I spent 7 trips into different places in the middle east...at least 30 shorter term deployments...I really wasnt enthused about leaving my family ever.
