I have been pretty quiet on the subject of women in combat, women in Marine Infantry Officer Basic Course, women in Ranger school...
I won't lie. I don't like the idea of women in the ground combat specialties. Lot's of reasons. The most important reason is maintaining unit cohesion, good order and discipline. None of y'all are stupid. You can figure it out on your own. Even if you have never been a Grunt. Y'all can pretend that it won't be a problem.
Just like Bradley Manning and Bruce Jenner pretend that they are girls.
They aren't. They never will be.
David P. Sent me this link this morning.
It is the best article on the subject that I have read to date.
Was it tough for them? Sure. I won't take that away from them.
Make of it what you will.
