Close Quarters, Small Teams, Blah, Blah, Blah…


“The question for SOF is whether we can absorb women into those Special Operations units whose job generally entails small teams, operating for long periods of time, in close proximity to the enemy or behind enemy lines and in close quarters with other Soldiers. And, can we achieve this level of integration without lowering our SOF standards? This is what we must find out.”  Admiral McRaven

Sir, the only question is the physical one…the rest of this nonsense about close quarters, small teams, etc. sounds like any other combat unit, so these characteristics do not make you special, your physical standard is the only thing that makes you special; and if no women can meet this standard, than that will be the only reason to ban women from your units.
