Skip to comments.AP Exclusive: Few Army women want combat jobs
Posted on 02/25/2014 7:35:58 AM PST by ConservativeStatement
FORT EUSTIS, Va. Only a small fraction of Army women say they'd like to move into one of the newly opening combat jobs, but those few who do say they want a job that takes them right into the heart of battle, according to preliminary results from a survey of the service's nearly 170,000 women.
That survey and others across the Army, publicly disclosed for the first time to The Associated Press, also revealed that soldiers of both genders are nervous about women entering combat jobs but say they are determined to do it fairly. Men are worried about losing their jobs to women; women are worried they will be seen as getting jobs because of their gender and not their qualifications. Both are emphatic that the Army must not lower standards to accommodate women.

Weight training — and lots of it.
What an odd comment to add to this story.
If they give them jobs being the boss, they can have the grunts do the hard stuff.
Weight training involving trips to the chow hall?
Why not have one section of the Army for men and another one for women. We could call the women's the Women's Army Corps--WACs for short!
I'll bet nobody's thought of that!
Okay, we'll call the men's the MACs.
Maybe we could set up a third section: the GACs. HACs? QACs?
In 1979 I was in the very first co-ed training platoon at Ft. Jackson, SC.
It REALLY got old dragging those boys along with us gals every d@mn day. ;)
Sounds like half a dozen....which makes it more likely that they’re libbers and happy people. You can define happy.
“Both are emphatic that the Army must not lower standards to accommodate women.”
If you are lower standards you are putting lives in danger!!!
If whatever social engineering du jour doesn’t make the military a fiercer fighting force then it is just simply liberal BS!!!
That is just this Chief’s two cents.
Form battalions of gays and women who want combat as front line shock troops.
Those few that do want to get bloody need a good psyche eval, most if not all ought to be disQual’d. Unstable.
They may think they want to get bloody, but they don’t know what they want.
My opinion is they ought to be raising babies that will g row up to be men to fight the nation’s battles, and yes, my knuckles kinda drag on the ground most days.
Is anyone surprised???
The women are not stupid.
They’ve seen what happens in combat first hand and don’t want to return home without arms or legs like the male soldiers.
I wonder what percentage of homosexuals aspire to combat?
“I wonder what percentage of homosexuals aspire to combat?”
Naw...more like a good game of butt darts.
mostly dykes on bikes, I believe.
That could be viewed as a suicide wish, making one unfit for service in the military.
Why can’t the DoD and President look around and ask why the NFL, MLB and NBA have no women on the field/court? But wait, you have to understand that the mission of these hard core radicals is to destroy the fabric and structure of the military that they have hated since Vietnam. When you understand that, you will understand what they are trying to do. And with the cuts Hagel wants, there wont be any military to work with anyway.
Liberal elites who NEVER in a million years would bother to defend this country want women soldiers mangled, killed and destroyed. It proves something for them... something so evil and base I can’t figure out what it is...
