Tradition...




Traditions can ground us. But they can also bind us and hinder us from growing, both as individuals and as a people. That could be why the Army is looking at screening women for combat duty, rather than holding on to the tradition of a blanket example.

Thanks! I love Fiddler on the Roof, haven't seen it in years!

(Got the point, of course.)

I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand I'm a bit of a traditionalist: men are supposed to die so that women may live. On the other hand, if some gals want combat, well, go for it. May have to make all women squads so the big tough guys don't have to feel like they are carrying the gals. However it works out, I would not be surprised to hear that women perform as well or better than men in combat.
