Generals say women should have to register for draft

Untitledvvfe

Ladies desire to be treated and have the same opportunity to serve in the combat roles. OK, got it as long as they meet the current physical and mental requirements. If we “change” or reduce them so they pass then watch your military become weaker and weaker. I have zero issues serving next to any female who makes the grade just as her male counterpart next to her. However, if standards are lowered, we have a serious problem.(sign into Facebook to watch)

 Thus, if female warriors want to be treated equally, I fully support having them have to register for the draft. Equal rights means equal treatment, that’s a two way street ya know.  It will be interesting to see if it really happens or we simply just lower the required standards. Much of this will come into play on who the next President is for sure. Time for a C-Gar

 

WASHINGTON -- The top Army and Marine Corps generals say they believe all women should have to register for the draft now that combat jobs are open to them.

The military service leaders say they will not lower standards to bring women into the more grueling jobs. They told the Senate Armed Services Committee that it will take up to three years before the combat posts are fully integrated.

Army Gen. Mark Milley and Marine Gen. Robert Neller said women should be included in the requirement to register for the selective service at age 18. But Navy Secretary Ray Mabus and Army Acting Secretary Patrick Murphy would only say that the issue should be discussed. Read full story here


Legendary Marine Sergeant Major Goes on Epic Rant Over Obama Admin Push for Women in Combat

0915A1-640x336

So if you are still drinking this administrations Kool Aide, read the below back lash from the recent decision to allow females into combat roles. Letting females into combat roles is problematic to say the least but don't take my opinion, as others are echoing it. Some will say what do you infantry Marine types out there know anyway? Those in Washington sitting in offices who have never been in the infantry know better. Then let that thought sink in.Time for a C-Gar

Legendary Marine Sergeant Major Goes on Epic Rant Over Obama Admin Push for Women in Combat

A legendary Marine Sergeant Major is fed up with the Obama administration’s push for women in combat despite overwhelming evidence that it will put Marines lives in danger.

Sergeant Major Justin LeHew, known as “The Hero of Nasiriyah”, took to Facebook after Secretary of the Navy Ray Maybus said the Marines should have chosen better females for the failed mixed gender combat experiment.

In the epic rant, SgtMaj LeHew says:

“…This was as stacked as a unit could get with the best Marines to give it a 100 percent success rate as we possibly could. End result? The best women in the GCEITF as a group in regard to infantry operations were equal or below in most all cases to the lowest 5 percent of men as a group in this test study.

The Problems of Women in Combat – From a Female Combat Vet

It’s not all about qualification. I’m speaking as a female Marine Iraq war vet who did serve in the combat zone doing entry checkpoint duty in Fallujah, and we worked with the grunts daily for that time. All the branches still have different standards for females and males. Why? Because most women wouldn’t even qualify to be in the military if they didn’t have separate standards. Men and women are different, but those pushing women into combat don’t want to admit that truth. They huff and puff about how women can do whatever men can do, but it just ain’t so. We’re built differently, and it doesn’t matter that one particular woman could best one particular man. The best woman is still no match for the best man, and most of the men she’d be fireman-carrying off the battlefield will be at least 100 lbs heavier than her with their gear on.

The US Marines tested all-male squads against mixed-gender ones, and the results were pretty bleak

Rtr3018z

Its not even funny, the Marine Corps has told congress, mixed gender infantry units is a bad idea, the facts prove its a bad idea, however, we still have a congress (who by the way are less than a 5% veteran congress) say its still a good idea. Again, you have some making the decisions on something they know nothing about. You want "equality"? You want women to me required to serve in the infantry? Then you better not complain when female fatalities skyrocket the next time they go to war with men in the infantry. Because they will. Those that have passed the Ranger school and almost passed the Marine Corps Infantry school, were set on it in their heart, did everything they could to pass, were determined. What happens if congress mandates females in the infantry which will include some not so determined females in battle? You can draw the conclusion, and it will include allot of body bags.

All-male squads, teams and crews and gender-integrated squads, teams, and crews had a noticeable difference in their performance of the basic combat tasks of negotiating obstacles and evacuating casualties. For example, when negotiating the wall obstacle, male Marines threw their packs to the top of the wall, whereas female Marines required regular assistance in getting their packs to the top. During casualty evacuation assessments, there were notable differences in execution times between all-male and gender-integrated groups, except in the case where teams conducted a casualty evacuation as a one-Marine fireman’s carry of another (in which case it was most often a male Marine who “evacuated” the casualty)

The report also says that female Marines had higher rates of injury throughout the experiment. Read more here

Two women have made military history by becoming the first female soldiers to complete the U.S. Army's grueling Ranger Course, the Army announced late Monday. 

The women, who were not immediately identified, will join 94 men Friday for a graduation ceremony at Fort Benning, Ga., where Ranger School is based. The unit consists of rapidly deployable troops who are often used in special operations.

"Each Ranger School graduate has shown the physical and mental toughness to successfully lead organizations at any level," said Secretary of the Army John M. McHugh in a statement. Read entire story here


Marine Corps Ends Female Infantry Officer Program

Femalemarine

You may have read it HERE on One Marine's View how the Marine Corps was the first service to accept women into combat billets for certification. Even though the US Army is accepting them into their Ranger program and special forcess

the Marine Corps has tried it and now is ending their acceptance of women into the combat billet  training at the officers school, Infantry Officers Course and you can bet ends additional ideas of women in combat billets. Infantry officers course is hard, it's not suppose to be easy and I can tell you, no standards were lowered. Time for a C-Gar

An 18 month trial period allowing female Marines to attend the Marine Corps’ Infantry Officer Course will end without a single female graduate, reported the Marine Corps Times.

The opportunity for female volunteers is part of a larger effort to determine the feasibility of allowing female officers to take part in ground combat operations. If anyone had successfully completed the course, they would not have earned the occupational designator or entered the infantry, since the program was only an experiment. 


Army opens grueling Ranger job to women

In 2012 The Marines allowed women to participate in the Infantry Officers Course (IOC). They were the first branch to make this opening and had interesting results. None of the multiple women that attended the course passed due to physical injury or physical standards.  Interesting, isn’t it? However, we opened it and the facts didn’t lie. The only way they would have made it through IOC would have been if the IOC physical standards were lowered. Now, the Ranger school and the US ARMY are trying the same thing. What it comes down to, if they make it, great but will standards be lowered to facilitate that to happen. Is that what America wants?  A level of professionals evaluated on a lower standard? Something to watch. Time for a C-Gar

 

The Army will allow as many as 60 women to participate in the next Ranger course, allowing women for the first time to compete in the grueling two-month combat school. It is considered one of the first steps into the military special operations field. 

Army Secretary John McHugh approved the change that would allow women in the course beginning in late April. 

While completing the leadership course would let women wear the coveted Ranger tab, it does not let them become members of the Ranger regiment. Currently only men can be in the 75th Ranger Regiment -- the special operations forces unit based at Fort Benning, Georgia. 

Joining the regiment requires additional schooling that is physically, emotionally and mentally challenging.

Some Marine combat jobs may remain closed to women

Amos-silhouette
The Marine Corps stepped up to be the first to allow women try out for infantry positions last year well ahead of the other branches. The Marine Corps recommended to Washington that it’s not a good idea. Today, the Marine Corps made it official that women may be in some combat roles and it also said some wont.

 


"We can't afford to lower standards," he said. "We can't make adjustments on what's required on the battlefield.

Will 'equality' now mean lower standards?

Marines32-340x165

“If data gathered … showed that gender ‘diversity’ would strengthen infantry battalions, surely we would have heard that news by now,” she said.

An organization that promotes high standards and sound priorities in the military is blasting “lame-duck” Defense Secretary Leon Panetta for opening combat positions to women.

Elaine Donnelly of the Center for Military Readiness said the move compromises the aim of having the most trained, most skilled and best-performing military.
