As long as the requirements regarding fitness tests are exactly the same with absolutely no compromises for gender at all, then I`m for giving it a shot. Women want equality, then women can serve, train, fight and die with equality.

Megossa, nobody is forcing you to go to the USA and join the armed forces, they are a 100% volunteer army, so if these women wanna be tough and go toe to toe against terrorists etc..hey, now they will be able to,but my guess is that many women will get pregnant to avoid being sent to the front lines.
