I believe women in the military is very important, they are obviously as part of it as any guy is. Even in combat, there are some women that are meant to be there. But at my reserve regiment, we have never had female officers, until possibly the end of this summer, depending how their training goes. For the first time, 2 females from my regiment have signed up for Inf Offc training. One is 5'2", and weighs in at less than 100 pounds (considering the rutsack is more than half her weight, she'll be facing problems there in an infantry regiment.) The other one is slightly taller and bigger (like 130 or so.) Anyways, I have problems believing these females could even be Infantry, but they have the audacity to believe they can lead a platoon of guys into combat. Where do people come off thinking they are able to do something like this? Is it just lack of info? I've talked with other soldiers, and they all feel the same way about the lack of intelligence at the recruiting level that told them they should sign up as inf offc. The Canadian Army's Infantry officer training is VERY hard, and if they somehow manage to do it (which I doubt), I don't know how I would feel about following them into combat. Officers are supposed to show the example of how things are done, and if they can hardly carry their gear, how the hell are they going to earn their men's respect? Any of you combat arms guys ever had female officers? How were they?
