Re: Recommendation Made to Army & Marines Allow Women in ALL Combat Specialties
Rod I totally agree. But then I was in Iraq '08-09 my last go around, with a female 2LT (acting commander) over an MP unit conducting PTT. She was an active CAB hunter even to the point that on more than one occasion disregarded orders and drug her convoys into black areas and would want us to clear random buildings that she felt were suspicious. Mind you it was only a squad with no back-up in an area that we were not supposed to be in. Sounds real smart right. Oh did I mention she had an affair with one of our female team leaders during pre-mob. I know that this is not indicitive of all female soldiers but damn what a long 16 month rotation (pre-mob to Homecoming)
