Women In Combat


#1

If the women can meet the standards then I would have no problem. However, women have a completely different set of APFT(Army Physical Fitness Test) standards than males and probably 99% couldn't meet the male minimum standard. Therefore, 99.999% of military women couldn't meet the standard to even attend the school. I don't know of any data on the US Army but when the canadian army as an experiment applied the same standard to males and females 99% failed to meet the minimum male standard.
