In training. They interviewed a woman captain who had destroyed her pelvis (angle of the femur)from marching with gear.
The whole issue regarding women on the frontlines is that some feminists think it’s unfair that so many men are generals. It’s an asset to have combat experience, hence the push to put women on the frontlines.
When I went to Airborne School in 1986, they’d just integrated the runs and everybody was basically crawling along just to keep the women in formation. The women were experiencing high incidents of stress fractures along the tibia (?), so any faster runs were prohibited for EVERYBODY.
I actually came out of the three week school in WORSE shape. It was like a vacation. It didn’t help that I turned 21 the night before my first jump ;)
