    Interesting article, but your comment got me thinking

    What is this really about - wanting things equal, equal opportunity, equal outcome, or etc.

    I have more questions than answers...

    Not to weigh down this topic, which I feel is very interesting. It’s a very multifaceted complex problem. But like all problems, it can, and will be solved. However, I hope the solution is identified before crisis management intervenes.

    Some daunting issues are, if and when the “draft” is initiated will notices be sent to 49% men and 51% percent women?

    Listen, lets get real here, it’s easy for men to step out side of their MRAP to urinate than women. (Although there are apparatus available to help). Or even do a number two in front of each other. How will this be dealt with in the field?
    I’ll probably get kicked off the forum for the above statement.

    While I shed a tear for any and all of our service men who return home under a flag. It will become more frequent for women due to the fact the more exposure to the dangers of combat. Are we as a country prepared for an increased number?

    And lets not forget, the families who have to pick up the pieces when our heroes return home carrying the psychological issues and dealing with PTSD.

    In the history of warfare, women have been in the front line. Still today other counties require women to serve. How will this affect our thinking here in the USA.

    This is why I find this interesting.

    Just stuff I think about here at work. And by the way, it’s that time of year we get busy here at the port. This is when the intermodal containers come in stuffed with Christmas season merchandise to be sold in a few months. Yeah, Santa has arrived here.

    My Bad....

    I had originally posted this article in mind to assist answering questions to another thread here. But I can see this will go sideways and away from the subject of USMA steps for admission. I apologize for this and request to have this thread moved to Military News.
