I've had this discussion with a lot of ex-military friends, who either went on to elite special forces or are currently still serving who think this is a bad idea. I've also had my friends who are recruiters tell me that standards have never been higher than they have now, and they turn away a lot more people than they ever get into the service.
I have already explained on this thread the SOP regarding the people who are pushing for such things. It's already happened in numerous fire departments. This is an approach that's been used before and will be again. It will not stop here, it never has.
Let's see how many preggos they allow waddling about on the front lines. This will be entertaining.
