My favorite sections: "The time has come for an accounting of this poorly conceived, deeply flawed, dimwitted program of plunging young girls into an all-male warrior environment geared to the education and preparation of young men for combat command." and "Upon graduation where do all these women go in the fleet? What kind of jobs do they have? If those jobs are in cyber warfare, can civilians do the same jobs? How many actually complete their full commitment, or even start to? What is the overall attrition and retention rate for female academy graduates compared to men? Lest anyone forget, we are a nation at war and we will be at war for the foreseeable future. The nation needs warriors, so the sooner we end this failed, politically driven social experiment, the better."
