With Respect to Combat Jobs, Should Women be Held to the Same Standards as Men in the Military? Since the topic of military equality has shot into the mainstream I have a few questions. Should Women be Held to the Same Standards as Men in the Military? Should they be held to the same physical fitness scale? (Both the physical fitness test and the MOS specific test) Should they be subject to 20 mile ruck marches? Should they be required to fight males in martial arts training? Should they be required to carry male soldiers (gear and all) to safety in combat training? Should they be required to register for selective service? If so then I say let em try. If not then we are risking lives for a feminist form of political gain.
