Having been in every combat zone since desert storm I can say without a doubt that women shouldn't be there. They just aren't made for it (with very few exceptions). They aren't able to meet the physical demands and it puts males at risk having to pick up there slack. The military knows this which is why women have a lower PT standard than men. Same job but a lower minimum standard! Have you ever tried to lift a 250# patient into a number 5 stanchion while being shot at? All the while the little female is unable to get her corner of the litter above her freaking waist!
