I wonder if you or Cookie have ever served. I put in 23 years as a tanker, with a year in Nam. Being a tank crewman is a lot more than just sitting the driver's seat. Most maintenance is a lot of knuckle busting. How about the loader? 120mm rounds are somewhat heavy and speed is important. You can't have one position where woman can be and the others not. Messes up career progression. Yes, take a look at Israelis, please. They tried it and stopped. No discussion here about combat effectiveness/readiness, only political correctness. Standards will be lowered to give the illusion of success.
