Reflection on life as a person of faith.

Gender Equality in Combat

leave a comment »

The other day I saw an article reporting the award of a medal for valour to a platoon commander from the RCR for her service in Afghanistan. This article, written by a US Marine Corps engineer, offers her opinion on why the USMC should not open up the infantry to co-ed service.  Her title is provocative.

I’ve served alongside women who were as competent at the job as I was…but I will admit that the question of service in the combat arms still causes me some concern. I’m not sure it’s a question of equality, as much as it is a question of the cost to the individual, and that is what this USMC Captain addresses.
