    I don't have a problem with women serving in combat but if they are going to serve there all women should do it, no exceptions........You know when you joined you might have to live in a foxhole and fight hand to hand with the enemy.....Don't get me wrong I think women should not serve there.....I would be horrified if my daughter had to do that?

    I wouldn't want my husband (If I was gay or a female), brother or son to serve in hand to hand combat and live in a foxhole. I wouldn't want them to be in harms way. But I would respect their service to their country and hope they make it out.

    I think if you lined up 200 soldiers, 100 men and 100 women, (in today's army) you'd find that far fewer women than men are eager for combat.

    I have nothing but gut instinct to back up that opinion. Well, that? And that I believe a woman with children is far less likely to want to be in harm's way than a father.

    You will not suck me into a gay issue here..........My daughter is 5'5" and weighs 115 lbs..........Of course she has a master degree in teaching so I don't have to worry about that.

    *snort* - you think people join the military to die?

    Heck - why'd you go in? You want to die?

    No one wants to die - you're in - ask why people join . . . everyone has their own reason and no one ever says "I have a death wish"

    What a stupid question
