I heard that too. I think it is a good idea. If the woman can do the job, let her do it. I also have heard cases where a woman is performing essentially the same job as her male counterpart, but because she is not allowed a combats situation, they call it a support position. This one case where both male and female were on guard,, doing searches, I think, and a bomb went off. Both were injured, but the male got a higher order of medal or commendation, whatever. It was because he was serving in a combat position, but she was only classified as support. That will have an effect at promotion time as his will count for more points.
It's a good thing.
As a female veteran all Ihave to say is...good.
If that's what they want to do, then they should be able to fight...
As an Iraqi war vet and a female I say "HELL YEA! IT'S ABOUT FREAKING TIME!!!"
It's about time they enter into the 20th century. Now in the 21st, I'd like to see gays openly...
It may effect my feelings of letting my daughter go into the military after she turns 18.
IMHO, 1 pissed of woman can get more done than 10 men with a road map and directions..
I don't personally think wommen should be in combat.
