Default Two Women graduate Ranger School

2 women to graduate from Army Ranger course - CNNPolitics.com

Two women are about to make history by becoming the first female soldiers to graduate from the Army's exhausting Ranger School.

They're among the 96 students who will graduate from the intensive training program Friday in Fort Benning, Georgia.

This was the first year the Army opened the course to women on a trial basis.

My question: if these women are ever allowed to proceed to RASP, will they make it through that?

I remember reading a book about Delta Force where one of the guys left the program from a medical issue. He actually walked out of the soles of his feet during a 30 mile night test. The skin on his soles basically fell off.

Woof.

And thank you for fueled and armed F-22s on the tarmac while we light off silly fireworks.

I think that you're talking about the dude that broke his leg half way through the final marathon hike, still went another 9 miles before he dropped.

You're talking about "inside Delta Force" by Eric Haney, hell of a book.

They're not even going to get assigned to a Ranger unit though, right? It's all for not?




"That women aren't allowed to perform certain roles comes as a surprise to many millennials"

Of course it does! rofl
Millennials get surprised when they grow up and have to pay actual bills.

I wouldn't say that. Convincing the top brass and SloBros that women can hack in elite combat units at the same standards is a key litmus test before they start allowing women to serve in combat. I hope that this and subsequent graduations prove that point. It's not like Army isn't already completely changing it's policies regarding not only women, but gays. The world changes, man. You know this.

Millenials are surprised because they tend to ignore demographic labels (race, gender, sexuality) and have a more meritocratic understanding of the world. I don't think that they're wrong.

You mean Millennials are surprised because they were all brought up together in the same pussified setup? They coddle everyone equally these days, you know that.
Then they hit the real world, THEN it's a "surprise" when the world isn't actually run like that.

Like it or not, these kids are gonna do what they're gonna do and be who they're gonna be. They're going to change the way the world works, because that's what happens, and at some point we'll just have to watch.

I dunno, I'm trying not to get wrapped up too much in the whole "Walked to school 5 miles in the snow, uphill both ways" kind of mindset. Maybe instead of being mad that these kids have shitty taste in music and like Drake so much, I just gotta admit that maybe hip hop isn't for me anymore.

In the end, all I can do is raise my own kids in the only way I know how and try to teach them to be considerate, tough, independent, etc.

And besides, are they wrong for being surprised? Personally I don't care if the person next to me has **** or a dick or both, as long as they do their ****** job.
