First female soldier in Green Beret training fails to complete the course


This is not an easy course to complete. 1 out of 3 pass the course as standards are held for the acceptance of the "Green Beret".It

 will be interesting to see if she tries again. Time for a C-Gar

"The first female soldier to participate in the Army’s initial training program for the Green Berets — side-by-side with men — has failed to complete the course this week, The Washington Times has learned.

The enlisted soldier is the first woman to attend the U.S. Army Special Forces Assessment and Selection (SFAS), the first step toward earning the Special Forces tab and the coveted Green Beret. The Times reported in July that two female officer candidates have been accepted to attend an SFAS class that begins in the spring." Read more here

Women (18-26yrs old) must register for the draft! - New Law


In an interesting 180 turn, the House Rules Committee has overturned the decision making it mandatory for all women (18-26 yrs old) signing up for the draft upon their 18 yr old birthday just like their male counterpart. You may have read here on One Marine's View where it was dropped recently.

Additionally, In addition, non-U.S.-citizens, immigrants, dual citizens males between the ages of 18 and 25 (inclusive) living in the United States must register.

However, with the recent push for more females in combat roles throughout the military branches, the House Rules Committee had little fight in the argument that if females desired to participate in combat roles / Military Occupation Specialty (MOS) than the draft is also part of the deal. 

So, there ya go, not only do females get the option to participate in the infantry, all females get to play in the military if there is a draft. It's not optional to sign up for it after they turn 18. When you want equal rights, accordingly, you should get all of them, and rightfully so, they got the entire package on this deal. Interesting how things work out. 

Keep this in mind, your military is at pre WWII numbers, your Marine Corps is especially "thin" as result of the past 8 years of purging at the cyclic rate and when crap hits the fan, the Marine Corps gets "theirs" from the draft. The new regulations may go into affect as soon as 2018. Read full story here.

Smokescreen on the Potomac: Pentagon and Congress deliberately ignoring $36 million USMC study that shows women cannot survive in the combat arms


Let’s watch how the Marine Corps and other branches deal with women in combat roles. Apparently, many people have spent allot of good tax payer money to have it determined if women would function in combat roles or not efficiently. The ruling is that it is highly discouraged. But read for your selves. Time for a C-Gar

The United States of America is in mortal jeopardy and most Americans, tucked away in their beds tonight don’t even understand why or who is responsible for their peril.

Those responsible are not from North Korea, China, Iran, Russia or ISIS. They are Department of Defense bureaucrats, members of Congress and senior leaders in the US military.

The US military is committing suicide. We are in the first stages of beginning a process that is going to decimate the speed, lethality and combat power of the Marines and the US Army combat arms and special operations. The US military is doing this because of policies directed by the White House and authorized by willing lackeys in the Pentagon and in Congress.

A Congress short on military veterans and long on wind and incompetence said nothing as the April 1, 2016, deadline passed for them to review Secretary of Defense Ash Carter’s authorization which allows women to serve in direct ground combat units. Read full story here

Marine Corps: Men and women must meet same standards for combat jobs


The latest from the Commandant of the Marine Corps is that "standards" will not lower to accommodate females into the combat billets. However, he does say they may change. Something to watch. Time for a C-Gar

The Marine Corps will not lower physical standards to allow women to join combat jobs, such as infantry, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus vowed Tuesday.

"I will never lower standards," Mabus told Marines and sailors at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California. "Let me repeat that: Standards will not be lowered for any group! Standards may be changed as circumstances in the world change, but they'll be changed for everybody."

After speaking about the Marine Corps' plan to integrate women into military occupational specialties that had been restricted to men, one Marine asked if female Marines would need to pass the same advanced courses as men to join the infantry. Read full story here

"Same standards; doesn't matter," Mabus replied. "I mean, they're Marines."

First female infantry recruit is a Louisiana police officer


Tammy Barnett said she figures her new job will be a lot like her old one..

She initially planned to enter the military police, “but infantry is similar,” she told The Army Times. “And they are more on the front lines, like law enforcement here, and I said, ‘that’s what I want to do.’”

Barnett said she planned to celebrate her oath by going fishing with her family.

“I hope that I give them the courage, because I’m a small female,” she told KSLA. “If I can do it, they can do it, too. This could give them the courage to step out of their comfort zone.”

Generals say women should have to register for draft


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


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


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. Time for a C-Gar

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
