The general opinion of women in the military is that they shouldn't be there,.
that women serve the war effort better by caring for their families. The truth.

that the services could utilize far more women than they had planned to (more.

our men There are times when obviously a 200-pound pump cannot be lifted by.
women; however, that same pump may not be able to be lifted by all of the male.
population of a particular unit as well. We have exposed the women to the gamut.
of our missions: law enforcement; marine environmental protection; aids to.
navigations; all of the other missions that we have. I can categorically state,.
sir, that their performance has be outstanding" (Holm, 341). With correct.
training a woman, can be as tough as any man. Women also have better vision.
making them able to see things more clearly then men.
Women are "an integral part" of the Nations defense, and they can do the job.
"as well" if not better then their male comrades. Through the services, women.
are promoted with less time-in-service than name to every grade from.
