East Texans talk-back on defense department's decision

Women have served in the military for decades. Even as far back as World War II, some were service pilots for the Army Air Forces. Over the last ten years, there has been no shortage of stories about the heroism of female soldiers.

Considering all of this, why on earth shouldn't women be able to fight alongside men? A question asked, then answered by Defense Secretary Panetta last week.

I'm pretty sure the Isreali army has been doing this for years.

I don't think women have any business in combat. First, their PT requirements aren't the same as men's which makes them weaker. Second, if they were captured, what horrible things would the enemy do to them? Last but not least, how distracting would they be to the men. Would the men put their lives in danger for the women, after all men are taught from birth to watch out for women?
