I am retired military and have taught ground warfare as well as deployed to war zones. The balistic vest alone weighs 35 lbs, weapon and other required equipment adds another 70 pounds or more. Have seen it repeatedly where female troops can't lift me in SABC training wearing nothing but BDUs. Doctrine is written in blood. No double standard, if she passes, she passes, if the social engineers are wrong doctrine should be written in blood not wishful thinking.
