yea seriously.... Why are pregnant women being allowed to do basic training in the army? Is their not a liability issue, or common sense? Has the U.S. army completely abandoned thousands of years of military doctrine regarding the value & treatment of the fairer sex in pregnancy?

frankly if they are going to allow women to serve in the army, their service MUST be suspended during pregnancy. Not only is creating new soldiers more important then the temporary service of existing female soldiers. It is wrong to risk an infants life with the riggers of military training.

I'm used to it. When I served, women were not filling "combat" billets, although we had Nurse Corps Officers, mostly women, with boots on the ground at 1st Med Battalion, Danang. One of those officers, Cdr. Proto, was awarded a Bronze Star with Combat "V" for her service as an OR nurse under fire.

I'm personally opposed to women serving in combat billets but if they are going to be required to served thus, I think they should satisfy the same physical requirements as their male counterparts - no gender norming.

The successful accomplishment of the mission as well as the safety of their comrades requires no less.

The queers have taken over the military. If I was in right now, I’d be telling those fairies to kiss my @$$ so they would be more sensitive to what it’s like to kiss my @$$.

It’s an unorthodox training aid, but don’t you think calling our troops “queers” is a bit harsh?

We need to take pictures of this and airdrop them on Iran to show them what they are up against.

Developed by the Army in 2008, the course includes aerobics classes, pool sessions and classroom studies on the physiology of pregnant women.

At first, I thought this was something new on Obama's watch.

“At first, I thought this was something new on Obama’s watch.”

It may have been developed during Bush’s last year in office, and I’m not excusing him, but is was developed in the second year of an out of control dem congress.

Next do we get to make the female NCOs and officers wear a banana and a couple of golf balls and give them a shot of testosterone so they can feel empathy for our intense sadness at having to put up with this kind of bulls**t?

Oh wait, many probably engage in similar behavior already...

Deuteronomy 22:5

The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

Obama and his whole regime are an obama-nation.

Just another instance of demoralizing our warriors and destroying our military.

“during a three-day class that teaches them to serve as fitness instructors for pregnant soldiers and new mothers.”

At first I was apalled, then I saw this. It doesn’t seem to crazy for the instructors to empathize with their targeted trainees.

Hey, look... I read the headline with the same disgust and snarkiness as everybody else. What kind of new silliness could this be? But then reading the story it’s obvious that this isn’t what it seemed to be. This is about some soldiers learning to be fitness instructors. There’s a lot of different things that they’ll need to know to fill that job. They’ll need some expertise on a whole range of bio-medical and sports body mechanics subjects. To find out that this is just one class where they learn about the peculiar issues of exercise with pregnant women... well... yeah, that’s something they ought to know about.

Yeah, sure... there shouldn’t be pregnant women in the military. But there are. And there’s plenty of pregnant wives of soldiers on post that are probably going to be taking some fitness classes. Seems to me that instructors are going to need to be trained for those sorts of issues.

Anyway, it’s just not the story it seemed to be when I opened it up. It’s just not a big deal.

If they need Fitness Instructors for pregnant women train women to do it.

Making men dress like faggots and trannies is just an extension of the queer agenda and nothing else.

No matter how it is justified it is still disgusting, wrong and should not be accepted.

Pregnant women in the Army are treated like the most fragile crystal. It’s pretty pathetic.

Ha! Silly me, too!

Welcome to Obama’s military...

This is a dang shame. I’m hanging my head over this one. Are they practicing to have pregnant women on the battlefield?

OR........are they wussifying the men?

I think it’s the latter. Too many women generals, IMO.
