The object of the administration is the degrading of the US military to the level of the Swiss guards, and achieving 'equality' that is neither wanted nor necessary. I find it revealing the the administration's lead on these 'talking points' is an Air Force fighter pilot - got news for you there sweet pea, flying a combat mission then returning to your air conditioned barracks does not equate to humping personal war gear/ammo, crew served weapon parts/ammo, radios, etc that our ground troops are burdened with. I carried a hell of a load in 'Nam, and it's not even close to what the Marine Grunt has to carry today.

Exactly "Texas Ranger" thanks for the comment!

Look this is all about PC, and getting votes. Its about the democratic
party trying to insure they get the female vote in the future. Few females
would sign up for it, and fewer would be able to do the job. We don't need
more dead Marines, male or female.

I thought that after the Fort Hood shooting that the promotion dependent on PC correctness was out the window, but wait, to quote the above "will be contingent on support for gender-based 'diversity metrics". To be fair, there are many women serving in the combat theater in necessary support roles and are exposed to their share of danger, and there were also a few Women Marines that could have kicked my a** back when, but they were not the bell curve norm but the exception, just as I imagine they would be today.

I understand the importance of civil rights, equality, and all that political rhetoric. But it seems like it would make more sense to test the waters maybe stateside where the stakes are lower if there happens to be an agenda the polls are disclosing. In other words, test, measure, and fix the equality issues in environments where people aren't getting shot at first, and the rest will take care of itself.

I think that everything published was actually very logical. But, think on this, suppose you added a little content? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, however what if you added something to maybe grab folk's attention? I mean One Marine's View: Survey of Marines Fails to Show Support for Women in Direct Ground Combat is a little boring. You might glance at Yahoo's home page and watch how they write news headlines to get people interested. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about everything've written. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.
