You guys are really delusional, lol. I'm sorry if you feel slighted for me saying that these comments are sexist from many of you, Howeverr as you said, the truth hurts.
As for my friend, I'm willing to bet that she could easily do a 12 mile hike in full battle rattle. I'm willing to also bet she could do more pull ups than 90% of you guys. She may even be abke to out bench most of you.
As for carrying a wounded comrade or the like well she can carry me for quite some distance and I am 6'4'' and weigh 300lbs.

I am not saying any woman should be allowed to serve. It is the elite of the elite.
But if female comes along and is able to pass the tests, then she should be allowed in. Period.
It was found that men and women differed in lifetime rates of PTSD. Surprisingly, women were twice as likely as men to have a diagnosis of PTSD at some point in their lifetime. Specifically, 10.4% of women and 5% of men were found to have PTSD at one time or another in their past.
Why might this be? This finding may partly be due to the fact that the women they interviewed were more likely than men to have experienced traumatic events such as rate that have a high likelihood of leading to the development of PTSD.
