Transcript of Women in Combat

Should women be allowed in combat? YES!!! These words, taken directly from the nineteenth constitutional amendment, apply almost directly to the women in combat policy debate, and describe how a lawsuit should completely vote in the favor of women’s ability to serve in combat. As long as they get the training and can pass the test then let them serve their country if they really want to. “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.” - Amendment 19 Amendment 14 "states that all citizens have the right to equal protection of the law in all states." As of 2010, 213,823 active-duty service women make up 14.5% of the total active force of 14.7 million, nearly 20% of the reserve force, and 20% of new recruits
Two servicewomen have been awarded the Silver Star, the military's third-highest medal for valor combat
Women make up 11.4% of OEF and OIF veterans.
Where and how women serve in the military should be based on ability and training, not gender.
Today, more than 350,000 women serve in our military, with some 30,000 in Afghanistan and Iraq.
We had the same fears when African-Americans and homosexuals were allowed into combat. Nothing Drastic happened and the military is still just as effective.
"From my 28 years in the Air Force, I know that service men consider women part of the team" - Brig. Gen. Wilma Vaught - U.S. Air Force (retired) Operation Enduring Freedom Operation Iraq Freedom Yes, Women should definitely be allowed in combat and be treated as equal as men in the armed forces.
