What's the problem with assigning women to areas they're good at,instead of,as is being indicated,expecting them to be as strong as men. There are a LOT of areas where women are as capable as men,if not more so. Why not concentrate on utilizing all soldiers with emphasis on their particular strengths and skills,regardless of gender?(Example-"I can't carry as much weight as others,but I can fix just about ANYTHING."or"I'm not a really good shot,but I can carry 100 pounds of gear all day long."
