I know when I served in the Air Force, I witnessed a lot of different things....... I saw a lot of women get ahead

Report: Women should be allowed to serve in combat
A Pentagon commission on diversity is recommending the U.S. military end its ban on women serving in direct combat roles -- a restriction the group says is discriminatory and out of touch with the demands of modern warfare.
Wow. Trust the US DoD to HAVE to spend money on a survey to tell us what the word could have told them for nothing. Are they THAT incompetent????

How is that different from some men? I know some men that I wouldn't trust my life with, but are eligible to get drafted anyway... If you preach for equality, you've got to be ready to go all the way with it. That's one of the things with any variety of equal rights... You only want the good things, but never any of the potentially negatives that come with it.
