Absolutely. The issue now, though, becomes if they're CAPABLE of doing what men are, why aren't they held to a similar standard. If they can't be held to a similar standard, then they need to MOS respective standards (which is actually what I've been a proponent of for a looooong time) instead of army-wide standards.
