The Military Leadership Diversity Commission, composed of military officers, businessmen and academics, is expected to recommend that women be allowed to serve in combat units. The matter is being addressed due to a number of criteria ranging from the modern lack of “frontline combat” to the ban creating a barrier to promotion. Admiral Mike Mullen commented last November, “I’d be hard pressed to say that any woman who serves in Afghanistan today, or who served in Iraq over the last few years, did so without facing the risks of their male counterparts.” A PDF draft of the recommendation can be read at the MLDC’s website.
If this comes to pass, I hope all American women are required to register for the draft immediately. Equal rights ladies!
