it’s OK. there are different rules for women:
different PT test
no Selective Service sign up required
mandatory return from the field for showers
and of course, what you just wrote.
The media is also getting a huge portion of this story wrong. They keep referring to Paula Broadwell as a "former Army officer."
That is 100% WRONG. She is currently a Lt Col in the US Army Reserves as a commissioned 0-5. She was promoted as recently as August 2012 - that was 3 months ago!
On top of everything else, she apparently revealed classified information to a 'symposium' and when the FBI seized her laptop they found classified documents on it.
Let me tell you in the clearest of terms: there are currently officers in the Disciplinary Barracks of Fort Leavenworth who are serving 25 years to life for those offenses right now. Tack on the adultery, conduct unbecoming, and fraternization charges, and she would be beyond toast.
