Do you actually believe carrying a rifle across your back in a climate-controlled building is the same as infantry combat?

No, but it's all that stuff they did before they earned the privilege of carrying a rifle across their backs that I think is the same.

It's not the same. It can be a halfway decent approximation, but that's about it. And I know if I got hit, and all I had around me was a woman to carry me out, I'd die. I'm well over 300 pounds in full kit. No way in hell a woman is pulling me out of such a situation.

That's not unfair of me to say, it's just a fact.
