I have never meet a woman who could hump the amounts of weight with little sleep for the lengths of time (2 weeks plus) and perform all testable events not just to standards but significantly above them.

    From the scuttlebutt that I have heard, and what people that I trust have heard, standards were lowered for women to pass.

    There are a whole $#@!load of men that cant finish these elite schools. That point seems lost on these leftist military leaders and officers.


    Going thru Ranger School is totally different than going thru Navy Seals Training. I know several Rangers that tried to become seals. They couldnt make it thru the training. I never even thought about wanting to become a Navy Seal.

    I don't like cold water. No way I would think about Seal training.

    They probably failed balancing a ball on their nose and catching a fish in their mouth.

    Woman who quit Air Force commando course questioned ‘highly suspicious’ lower standards

    A female captain who may become the Air Force’s first woman to complete its elite special tactics training raised concerns about the program’s shifting standards as early as April 2021, Air Force Times has learned.
    Multiple documents obtained by Air Force Times — including performance forms, score charts and a report the woman authored shortly after dropping out of a land navigation event — illustrate how she was allowed to return to training after she quit, and how physical training metrics were lowered just as she arrived at a challenging schoolhouse last spring.

    “I believe the change in standards invalidated me with a majority of my team,” she wrote in an April 2021 memo to an unnamed master sergeant about her experience at the school. “One [instructor] cadre member had a conversation with a student and said that the cadre ‘rioted’ when they found out the PT test was changing back to lesser standards.


    “Perhaps all of this timing was coincidental, but looks highly suspicious with my arrival on campus,” she added. Air Force Times is withholding her name for privacy reasons.
