Should women soldiers see front line combat? VOTE
We could be seeing more women in front line combat jobs including Navy Seals and Special Operations Command, according to a recent report.
Chief of Navy Operations Adm Jon Greenert told Defense News that he and Rear Admiral Brian Losey , the head of the Navy Special Warfare Command, both think that women should be allowed to serve if they make it through the six-month Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL Training Program.
Is that enough? What about the risk involved of they are captured and held prisoner? How would you feel as a soldier with a woman having your back?
No decisions have been made yet, but recommendations must be made to Defense Secretary Carter Ash this fall. During the Iraq and Afganistan wars, thousands of women served and fought and about 160 died.
How do you feel about women in front line combat?
