I will say that there are very few examples where woman have performed very well under combat. Coming from experience with woman in the service I have been exposed too, like most woman are very EMOTION driven and when bullets start flying, I have seen that many duck and stay down. Most cry. This is from my experience and thats all. And you said you were in the army in 83-86. Might I ask what war you were so called exposed to in your time in Army. Marine corps in 2012 tried 2 females in infantry training and both failed with 1 female out in first week and the other only lasting a month. ts not just mental toughness and a majority of women lack the required strength.
Sorry just my opinion, not here to offend again I have seen it with my OWN EYES IN COMBAT.
