I have mixed emotions about women in the military, none of them having to do w/capabilities of women. My concern would be that, in times of great stress, the 'southern gentleman' that someone mentioned would come out in some men and possibly endanger any group. It's difficult to overcome centuries of training and upbringing.
However, if they do go full-blown front line duty, then women should be down at the post office on their 18th birthday, just like the men.
I have nothing but respect for our men and women in the military. I just don't want my son in it, or any of my kids. We will just leave it at that.
