    Plus, what if you have a potential spine injury...Are your squad mates going to toss you over their shoulder or create a makeshift stretcher? Then two people have to carry you anyway...Of course, depending on the possiblity of further combat developing...
    I don't really get your point. With a guy with me I have a decent chance of being carried to saftey while with the chick I have almost none. I have carried some pretty heavy dudes on the top of my ruck for quite a distance and while not fun it is still worth it to know that if the shoe is on the other foot he will be able to carry me.
    If we are still getting shot at it dosent matter if I have a spine injury or not they are going to move me a fast as possible. Every man you put holding that stretcher is one less on security and with a small patrol you don't have enough guns facing out to start with.
    President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."

    Which is different practically from being surrounded by water how? I can think of a couple things, but none of them has any relevance to the discussion(ease of unreps for example).

    Simple solution - all-woman subs.

    So the point you wish to refute in my post is the definition of the word long?

    It was really more of a joking response than an attempt at a point.

    Although saying that your squad mate would be a 110 pound female is probably incorrect, they would likely be at least 135-150 if they could handle the job. Or perhaps I am wrong.

    Good point.

    But like I said: "Of course, depending on the possiblity of further combat developing..."

    If the situation warrented it, you would obviously have to adjust to match.

    I never had a bar-tab. The grunts always took care of that.

    You see Blackdog, when you're in the suck and getting your grunt ass kicked, a CAS officer (of either gender) is your very best friend.

    If you had ever spent anytime submerged on a sub you might change your mind......I use to begrudge sub sailor the extra money they got until I got underway on the USS DIABLO one day....I never begrudged them the extra money they got again........
