    I agree. I am also rather tall and not skin n' bones for an asian female and can hold my own just fine. I had a phyiscally abusive (now ex husband) and let's say I did put him in the hospital for trying to mess with me and he won't ever forget. Mind you he was big man..rather I say coward..6 foot tall and a good 250. And I am 5'9" 140. Not small and not big..but like I said, I can hold my own.

    Terry T: I concur nothing wrong with a women serving in hand to hand combat,upper body strength or no it's not a shoving match,it's a know how to match.

    Women should be entered into the draft at 18 and required to go through the same thing that males do, frankly speaking.

    Unfortunately, knowing how to run with a M240 Bravo while under fire and carrying 70 lbs of equipment on your back is not the same thing as doing it.

    Which is why they should not lower the standards (create two different ones) for any soldier, but neither should they deny entrance based on anything but those standards.

    If that indeed is what we are talking about,a woman because of her size may not be carrying the SAW. However I'm led to believe that we are talking hand to hand, K-Bar,bayonet, etc.

    Mutzie, darling, is it absolutely necessary for a warrior to run with an M240 Bravo while under fire, and also carrying a 70-pound pack. Surely, warfare can be competently sized down so that 80-females can be deadly.

    If they could I am sure they would Simone
    Though I would agree that 80- females could be deadly....and you never call me darling....
