another facebook find, just for you anon :) [i am a fan of CNN on facebook]
The U.S. military is ending its policy of excluding women from combat and will open combat jobs and direct combat units to female troops
“We will eliminate the policy of ‘no women in units that are tasked with direct combat,’” a senior defense official says.
“It will take awhile to work out the mechanics in some cases. We expect some jobs to open quickly, by the end of this year. Others, like Special Operations Forces and Infantry, may take longer,” a senior defense official explains.
The official says the goal remains to open as many as possible. “We should open all specialties to the maximum extent possible to women. We know they can do it.”
Thoughts? My ex was a soldier in an infantry unit & he told me if women were beside him during raids and such, his instinct to protect her would've distracted him. (not that that validates anything, just throwing that in there, as i know it is a concern for some male troops)Answer Question
