    1,766 words
    Position Essay "Who Should Serve" There are growing feelings in the United States that, as women are having more rights given to them that were previously restricted, women should be given everything that is offered to men. This is becoming very true in the military, where much sentiment is that women should be given the opportunity to serve in combat arms positions. Women are currently allowed to serve in combat support positions, such as military intelligence and air support positions, but the...
  • Combat Roles
    1,333 words
    Women in Combat Women have played a tremendous roll in many countries armed forces from the past to the present. Women have thoroughly integrated into the armed forces; all positions in the armed forces should be fully accessible to women who can compete with men intellectually and physically. Yet, many argue that the distinction between combat and non-combat becomes blurred in the context of women warfare (Ladin; Holm, Hoar). In actuality, many women are assigned to jobs that will expose them t...

    2 SEP 2002 OUTLINE I. Introduction. The Marine Corps today has developed itself into an elite fighting force based on strong naval traditions.

  • Front Lines Of Combat
    1,161 words
    Women in Front Line Combat When it comes to combat assignments and the needs of the military, men take precedence over all other considerations, including career prospects of female service members. Female military members have been encouraged to pursue opportunities and career enhancement within the armed forces, which limit them only to the needs and good of the service due to women being not as "similarly situated" as their male counterparts when it comes to strength or aggressiveness, and ar...

  • Us Policy On Women In Combat Units
    619 words
    The Labels Shown in GI Jane The movie GI Jane is about a test to see if women are capable of becoming part of combat units in the United States military. It is a test of the capabilities of a woman (played by Demi Moore) and to see if she can complete Navy SEAL training. This is designed to see if the US policy on women in combat units (Navy SEALs, Army Special Forces, Marine Force Recon, etc.) is valid. Currently, the US military does not allow women in front line units such as the SEALs and th...
  • Effect Of Females In Direct Combat Units
    2,448 words
    Since its inception, the United States has called its sons and daughters to war to defend freedom and democracy and to end tyranny abroad. For more than three hundred years, many brave Americans have answered that call of duty, and some have given the ultimate sacrifice. Although many see war as a man's duty, countless numbers of women have fought and died for this country. They have disguised themselves as men, performed as nurses, and served in almost all facets of the United States Military. ...
  • Team Member For Sexual Harassment
    861 words
    Female Integration In Military Combat There is now more than ever, pressure to deploy women in heavy combat roles alongside men. It may be politically correct to say that women can do anything that men can, but it's also false. Granted, there are women who can live up to the physical challenges of war, but they are not the norm, nor will they ever be. Beyond even the physical drawbacks lie numerous legal and moral issues. Women are three times more likely to be un deployable in a combat situatio...
