With the news today that two women have successfully completed the Army’s Ranger School it did not take long for more news of big changes to hit the airwaves. From Naval Special Warfare Command today, the Navy SEAL’s will be opening their ranks to women.  From The Navy Times:

The Navy is planning to open its elite SEAL teams to women who can pass the grueling training regimen, the service’s top officer said Tuesday in an exclusive interview.

Adm. Jon Greenert said he and the head of Naval Special Warfare Command, Rear Adm. Brian Losey, believe that if women can pass the legendary six-month Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training, they should be allowed to serve.

One thought on “Navy SEALs to Open to Women

  1. Why? Having women in a purely combat unit will weaken that units capabilities. I can list several ways without giving it much thought, but the first one that comes to mind is, Gi Jane joins the unit. Gi Joe has feelings for Jane. Jane Rejects Joe and bangs Gi Joe’s battle buddy, Gi John. Jealousy can’t be good in a small elite fighting units.
    If you want to see public opinion flip on a conflict, let the public hear about a captured female seal being the victim of a 100 man 24 hour rape rally before they cut her head off, all on camera.
    But what the hell, train em up because if Obama keeps gutting the military, our women her at home are going to need fight for their own lives.
