Women that go into combat must know the risks and know what can happen in theater! If they do not know the risks or war they will learn real fast or die trying just like us guys that have seen combat and those that will see it in the future! Such is war! Not pretty, not a good thing, nothing to look forward to but to avoid like the plague! But when it happens we must have a fight force that is just not projection but in actuality a machine made for death and destruction! If you must fight, fight to win! As stated by my Father who was a Pearl harbor Survivor and a US Marine that landed on two beaches during WWII! the most hard and loving man I have ever met! His word was golden and his wisdom pure! I miss men like my father!

Last week as a last hoorah, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta lifted the ban on women serving combat even though women have been serving in combat for quite some time. Now, a new Rasmussen Report shows 59 percent of voters favor women serving in full combat positions.

Most voters think women in the military should be able to fight in combat just like men do. But they still believe overwhelmingly that women need to pass the same physical tests as men if they’re in special forces like the Green Berets and Navy SEALs.
