Women in Combat Roles
January 29, 2013 | John Leland 1789

Dear Elected Represenatives :

Just a couple of years ago, I wrote to all of my elected representatives about women in combat, and about the eventual possibility of women being required to register with the Selective Service Administration, as males are required to do.

I received letters from Congress and the Department of Defense that carried this response, "Sir, don't be alarmed --- don't you know that it is against the law for women to serve in combat roles?"

Well, is it against the law, or isn't it ?

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta wants women in combat units ! Does the Defense Secretary have the power to write law, revise law, or ignore the law ? Or was I misled by my representatives who told me that it is against the law for women to serve in comabat ?

This is a very negative course for American women and families. We trust you, Sirs, will fight with us against this trend.

The next step will be requiring females to register with the Selective Service Administration when they turn 18 years of age.

Remember that this is all for "equal rights" experimentation in the social laboratory of the U.S. Armed Forces. It has nothing to do with improving our fighting or defense capabilities.

The grand purpose is to tear families down to the ultimate degree--to make a false patriotism more important than home and family order. This will include more young mothers being inducted into the Armed Forces, separating them from their husbands and children. Many of those mothers will never see their children again, as the more UNO and anti-terrorist conflicts the USA gets engaged in, the more young mothers will come home in coffins, leaving their children motherless. This will be considered "equal rights" by the elites and by the feminist organizations. Many young mothers will return to their children maimed and crippled.

You can be assured that eventually there will be a reinstatement of military conscription (the draft). The way that left-wing, godless, humanistic, socialistic change is crashing down around our shoulders at present, it is likely to be sooner rather than later. The left wing will use it to test how compliant it can force Americans to be—especially this generation which has been taught in the public schools to make government its god, and to trust government for benefits instead of God.

Christians will have to draw a line where they decide to protect their daughters . . . and wives, if they are young enough to be drafted. Will you, Christian, comply and send your daughters, perhaps your wife, to make themselves available to the army by registering with Selective Service ? You say, "Well, it hasn't happened, and it's not likely to happen." Let me ask you something, Christian : What other things have you seen happen in the last decade of which you had previously said, "That won't happen in America." ???

The leftists in our federal government must destroy our families and our churches in order to succeed with their plans. Having lived in two communist countries myself, I can tell you absolutely that the churches must be taken over, and the federal government must be made to be your "Daddy," your "Mommy," your "Uncle," and your "Aunt." Your loyalty and dependence MUST be shifted from God and family to the government.

A very convenient way the federal government has to transfer the loyalty of your daughters from fathers and husbands to the government is to begin putting females in combat units, fox holes with males, destroy the discreet nature of your daughters, put them out there where they have to be intimate with men to whom they are not married---create situations where males have to undress females (and visa versa) when they are injured in combat to save their lives ; this is, not to mention providing more moral temptations in remote settings where males and females are spending nights together in the field or on patrol . . . or in the belly of naval ships (already happening now).

All of the above wickedness will be called "patriotism." Christians who object to their wives and daughters serving in this way will be labeled "unpatriotic," and worse. We have already been called “unpatriotic” even by so-called conservatives (who like to see women in compromised situations) for taking this stand in protection of our own daughters.

Christians, you will have to make a stand, or not make a stand somewhere along this line. The introduction of females into combat units is a conscientious objection, only one of them, that my own sons have put forward along with their selective service registrations, "I, as a Christian man, conscientiously object to serving in close quarters with females because of the moral temptations that arise, when the Word of God has taught me plainly to 'make no provision for the flesh'."

We urge you, our elected representatives to openly take a stand against placing females in combat units of any size or configuration.

The next war will be all drones. No need for ground troops. The “front lines” will be 10,000 feet in the air. The only casualities will be the occassional drone shot down.

If you truly believe this, I have some oceanfront property near Amarillo, Texas that I will sell you for a STEAL!

It was only a few short years ago that our President, George W. at the time, stated that we would us the air power with shock and awe to rattle loose the grip on the Iraqi people and that we would then basically walk into Baghdad without much of a fight. How did that workout for us?

To win wars, you MUST have front line men on the ground securing and maintaining the land and the people - otherwise, those who are assaulted by our drones inadvertently will be as opposed to us and our ideas as those we were actually shooting at!

The next World War won't be nuclear, it will be block to block, street to street and house to house - ask those returning from Iraq and Afghanistan! We cannot simply bomb our way to victory! It takes boots on the ground to quell the resurrection and to supply and support the survivors; again failure to do this will result in MORE hatred, not less (see Obama policy for proof positive of my statements)!!

Somehow, I can’t believe that the US Public could stand to see women storming the beaches at Omaha and Iwo Jima, while watching them being cut down by enemy fire.

If they do, I believe the Feminazis who demand this should be press ganged into the service to lead the charge.

If this is about “equality”, then when are we going to get rid of the WIC program? What about maternity leave? Alimony?

Generals are always fighting the last war. The “drone war” is what we have now. It’s clean, surgical and only the “enemy” gets killed.

If you look at new weapons system aquisitions a lot is for unmanned aircraft. My buddy sent me a pic today about the unmanned resupply helicopter.

House to house, nah. Keep a drone overhead 24/7. They have to come out to get supplies then you can pick them off.

Massive tank battles, with who? Storming beaches, hadn’t happened since Korea.

Lessons from Iraq and Afghanistan, forgotten already.

So too forgotten where the "storming beaches" lessons of WWII - UNTIL Korea. And in Korea these "forgotten" lessons were indispensable in the reversal of the plight of that theater of combat.

If you did not know, Saddam Hussein specifically left a bulk of his forces on the beachfront of Kuwait because he was afraid that the U.S. Marines would be making such a beach landing. The threat thereof helped make the route of his forces that much easier.

Again, killing people from afar does not change the overall climate of the people of the land we are bombing! That takes boots on the ground and forces to counteract the stupid thoughts and teachings of the offspring of those people we already killed. Otherwise, we will have to go back in 15-20 years to do more drone killings. Then another 15-20, and then another. It is a cycle sure to repeat itself if we DON'T have boots on the ground.

was the PT exam which consisted of the Inverted crawl, the Run-dodge-and-jump, the Horizontal ladder, Sit ups, and 2 mile run.

That was the old 500 point test, before they adopted the 300 (350?) point test, which is inferior.
