The truth about female troop performance during the Gulf War
The two countries that tried a feminized military and quickly abandoned it
The hard data on soaring attrition rates, skyrocketing medical costs, lower rates of deployment, mushrooming levels of single parenthood, and more...

I haven't read the book, admittedly, so you can take this with a few grains of salt. However, based on what news and complaints that have arisen from women in our armed forces. It's not the women who can't serve in combat or in any other military function.
It's men who can't keep their hands on off the women. So is it the women who are creating the distraction, or men who find they fail at one very important human function..........self-control?

I dont really agree with your point of view. Women in the military should be a norm, but women in combat mos should not happen. Because it would distract the men, they dont have the same fitness standards, need regular cleaning because of the time of the month issue and without it she will get an infection (regular cleaning wont be possible as an infantryman). I dont really care if women are in support roles, but they dont belong in combat mos until it is proven that the men wont be distracted, and the fitness standards are raised to meet the males fitness standards
