Women Attending Ranger School

Go here and read the Army Times piece.

Then read the money quote at the end, " Women who successfully complete Ranger School will receive a certificate and be awarded the coveted Ranger tab." The DAMNED outcome has been predetermined.

There is no way any woman is going to make it through the course unless she is carried. If they force a woman through and pin a Tab on her, it lessens the value of the Tab for every other Ranger School graduate who earned his. If that happens, it will be used as a precedent to force women into every other aspect of military life which ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY says they cannot tolerate nor sustain. This will weaken the force over all. Ultimately, that is what is desired

Girls do NOT belong in the Infantry. They damned sure don't belong in Ranger training. There may be a bull dyke, out there in the world, who could make it through the Ranger Course. This would be an exceptional exception to the rule. Making national policy based on a one in ten thousand exception to the rule is a recipe for disaster/suicide. Ranger school is HARD for a reason. It tests the best and hardest of men. Girls, by design are not HARD. Dear Lord we are having this discussion because our National leaders are out of their minds.





This is my class. Look at the faces. Do they look healthy? The photo was taken AFTER we had been back on solid food for three days. Go here to look at a larger photo.

I attended the course as a PFC from the First By God Battalion. I was conditioned for it for over a year before I got my slot. It was hard for me and on me. Not impossible, but hard. My body was broken down at the end. It took weeks to initially recover and months to FULLY recover. I had open sores which didn't heal until after I got back on solid food. My endocrine system was interrupted to the point my nuts didn't function for almost two weeks after graduation. I started the course at 175 pounds and graduated at 145.

A normal healthy woman is not going to be able to handle this kind of stress. A woman is not physically, nor is she emotionally, programmed to handle this kind of stress. It is cruel to put women in this situation and LIE to them and say, "Go forth and be the same as a man!" It is unnatural. It is sickening.

May God have mercy on us.

I'm a female retired Army officer, branch EN, trained to fight as IN as required. When I was a MAJ, some one asked me about women serving in the Infantry. My response was that I would prefer to retire rather than serve as Commander of a 'coed' combat unit, especially IN. Not only would field sanitation in combat have added nightmares, but command and control on the move could be untenable, as you would have one group that would move at a different average march rate. Upper body strength would also be a concern. It's one thing to build up for testing, another to maintain in the field. That's without the sexual issues. I'd command all male or all female, but not mixed. In the SF environment, the issues would be magnified, even if or when women earn Ranger tabs. I have a relative, female, who went thru part of the vetting process for Delta. When going thru the psych, they addressed whether she thought she could use all her 'equipment' (they were not as censored as I) and she realized she was not prepared or willing to go that far, literally. Any female in the combat arms or SF must address that issue at some level (which was only hinted at in our SERE FTX), and I'm not sure you need that on your team. Would other team members rationalize that if you'd sex bad guys for the cause, you should be willing to do the same for your good guy team? Only gets worse from there. Consider me old fashioned...
