I'm an Army veteran and I have no problem with women in the Army, but some common sense needs to be used. Some military roles don't require the same physical readiness, and I can understand having different standards for women than men when they are serving in different capacities. However, if women expect to serve in the same roles as men then they should also have to meet the same standards --- currently this is not the case. You may need to march 20 miles with 50 lbs. of gear on your back, and if you can't do it then you put everyone's lives at risk. If 2 women out of 100 can make it then it isn't worth trying to accommodate them.
