COB6 sends this link to an Associated Press article about the Army’s discussion whether they’re going to let women in Ranger School;
Gen. Raymond Odierno, Army chief of staff, says he’s asked senior commanders to provide him with recommendations and a plan this summer. He says if women are eventually allowed to serve in the infantry, they would have to go to Ranger school in order to be competitive with their male counterparts as they move through the ranks.
Going to Ranger school does not automatically mean they would be allowed to serve in one of the Army’s three elite Ranger battalions, which are Army special operations forces. Women are not allowed to serve as special operators.
COB6 says “Every time we put a tanker in charge Rangers get f*cked!”
