    ****ing hypocrisy abounds in this thread.
    Actually, the soldiers in the military are kept in a physical status that is balanced between stamina and power.

    Body builders do not fit into that category, whether males or females.

    Yes, and yes. If she requires medical treatment then of course she should receive it, just like anyone else who happens to get injured onboard. If she requires counseling, then she should receive it. Do they not have counselors on board? You guys keep going on and on about the psychological difficulty on subs, so I can't imagine that they don't have counselors. Should she continue to do her job? Yes.

    Yes, which is why this is quite the weird situation.

    I guess she didn't see much fighting.

    All us vets are saying no such thing. Qualify that with some vets; not all.

    She did fine in basic training, in a female unit, at female standards.

    I don;t she could handle being a grunt everyday, after she loses all that muscle mass, because she isn't taking in the calories that she needs to maintain that physique.

    You were a hospital steward. I wasn't counting you as a vet. Unless you got some field time. Did you?

    Not rape councilers, no. For obvious reasons. I guess we're going to have to assign a shrink to every sub now, in case some chick get's raped, or harassed.

    Same thing that happens if one sub mate attacks or kills another. The guilty should be imprisoned and the victim is counseled and possibly isolated.

    Our military operations should not be dictated by criminal activity.
