    Not comparable. A civilian police officer and a solider patrolling in Iraq are not even remotely the same thing.

    I'm sure the submariners are thrilled.
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    I agree there day to day duties are not the problem...Their physical capabilities are........

    I dont think the average physical weakness will mean that NO WOMEN would be able to serve on subs. There are plenty of very strong women that would be able to serve on a sub.
    1. Yes

    2. Most women not all do not have the physical strength to serve on a sub and that does not even talk about accomadations.........

    Yeah in a lot of places in the U.S. the police officers job is more dangerous......

    Some people are talking about infantry standards across the board; not MOS specific.

    If this doesn't apply to you, then don't respond.

    Doctors in the Army are officers without command. They are not leaders of men and considered non-combatants. They get the respect of the rank and pay, thats it. Same for Army nurses.

    They are civilians in a support role and considered non combatants. They do not go through basic training, they go through ROTC.

    They do not have to meet the physical requirements at all. Same with Chaplin's.

    Then what's with this across the board infantry standards?

    What part of "Non combatant" did you miss? They are not considered solders. They get the respect and pay grade, that's it.
