I'm a woman and was in the military and "yes" I could carry a 180 lb person 500 yards (we're trained how - so not a good argument). The real test is not in the strength or weakness of a woman since only those who can meet the rigorous physical standards would supposedly be accepted. The real test is how will a man handle watching a female be tortured by gang-rape or worse. The real test is how will the stressful situation of combat prevent at least one of the men from "falling in love" with the woman with whom he serves or v/v. There will be exceptions to those who aren't ruled by their hormones, but in reality, sex is the military's second-favorite pastime. If they were honest, it's their first-favorite pastime and military is second.
