Looks like 'defense of the country' will fall to the ordinary citizens. Not the Bee quotes the London Telegraph here:
The US Army is considering a reversal of its new gender-neutral physical test to instead include different evaluation categories for men and women.
Research showed that the Army Combat Fitness Test [ACFT], which is the same for male and female soldiers, was leading to lower results for women with a knock-on effect for promotions.
Surely the Pentagon's spokes-critter will clarify this.
Do they still have to be able to aim, shoot, and field-strip guns?
The opposite effect -- that women get promoted much more easily because they have lower physical standards -- has had a big negative effect on morale for some years. This was an opportunity to correct it, which the Army is determined to miss.
