Women In Combat

Men, we all know this and “Karma” knows it as well (Nicely wriiten response, K). Women will never be one of the “boys”. Just look at co-ed sports teams.
Using a cop’s experience and trying to related it to the military is just plan wrong. Have you professor watch one of the specials on Ranger School, 54 days of little (less than three hours) or no sleep, restricted calories (the average weight loss is 30 pounds from already high fit individuals), high mental pressure, few showers, etc… Ranger school was designed to duplicate or exceed the pressures a leader would face in combat. This is the kind to experience a man or a woman would face in combat. Not that of a police officer, weither in training or on the beat.
Best of Luck.
