    I'm smart, quick, tough, keep my head when things are going to **** around me, and I'm a damn good shot with any firearm. Nonetheless I'm no longer fit for service in an infantry combat unit, because I could not hump all that gear and keep up and still have anything left when we got to the fight.

    Not everyone can do that stuff even at 24. Not all young men can. If some young tough women can hack it, more power to them... but it just blows my mind when someone tries to pretend strength and endurance are not relevant. They must never have seen a soldier in full battle-rattle is all I can assume, let alone tried to actually move around wearing all that gear.

    Ma'am, I'd thank you kindly not to refer to me as a "boy". I'm probably older than you.

    No, I don't know where you've been or who you've fought, as I am not a mind-reader. Perhaps you'd like to tell us; or not, I don't really care.

    In any case I'd have to assume you have never been an infantry soldier, or you'd know that strength, endurance and physicality are very important to those serving in that capacity.

    I mostly think about them trying to drag or carry another full grown adult male who is injured out of the path of danger, and now that I know they wear all that gear, I know it's even harder than I thought.

    Very good. I was good at what I did also, which was law enforcement.

    Neither of us was a grunt, though, so I have to go by what I've read about modern infantry requirements, and what I've been told by friends who are current-service grunts: that would be that yes, there is a lot of physicality involved, and a lot of strength and endurance required to be mobile/hostile/agile while loaded down with all that gear and doing it in harsh terrain.

    I'm not saying women can't do it; I imagine some probably can. I'm just saying that strength and endurance are very important for an infantry soldier, and I am baffled that some people seem to take this statement as some kind of insult to womanhood.

    Of course women cannot dig holes or trenches..or fight a man..It would be stupid of me to say they could..

    But they make excellent snipers..

    Well, generally anyway. This woman probably wouldn't have any problems though.
