U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter will announce a plan to open all combat jobs to women, in a historic move that aims to strike down gender barriers in the military, a U.S. official told Reuters on Thursday.
The official declined to offer details on the plan, which would be implemented over time, and spoke on condition of anonymity ahead of Carter's appearance at a news conference to unveil the decision.
The decision comes nearly three years after the Pentagon first eliminated its ban on women serving in front-line combat roles and began a process that would let women compete for thousands of additional military jobs.

Subordination is one of the beautiful rays which flash from the glory of true womanhood. Never was there a grander and graver mistake than to suppose that there is any humiliation in it, or that subordination means subjugation. Jesus Christ subjected Himself to God; but was He degraded by It? Did He not, in that subjection, work out the grandest glory for Himself and the world? Away with the idea that woman, by being subjected to man is degraded. --
‚ÄúThe women of my people have ye cast out from their pleasant houses; from their children have ye taken away my glory for ever.‚ÄĚ Micah 2:9
Additionally, the two Army EO Equal Opportunity representatives presenting to us at the Command level didn't know the difference between national origin and ethnic background until a chaplain and JAG officer corrected them and one still contended that national origin was subjective given his being multi-racial. And there was even more confusion when sexual orientation and gender identity came up.
One more year of this, not going for 20 in this atmosphere.

I can't stand to see a butch woman, a woman with short hair, a woman dressed as a man, or any woman doing things a man should be doing, lifting, or leading. Such a turn off, but some men like that, I guess. The lines between male and female, not only concerning outward appearance, but in how each acts and lives sure have become blurred.
We were instructed at a weekend drill in November that when there is a heavy object needing to be moved, one should not say, "I need three strong guys to moved this." Nor is proper to even say "I need three strong Soldiers." What should be said in this example is, "We need 3 Soldiers to move this."
Take time to read the USMC report on coed units compared to all male units or female units. The female units were as effective and better suited to shoot accurately and physically perform more effectively than a coed unit. This is a plan by the federal government and they will not be able to meet recruiting standards or the manpower needed to be affective projection of force. Therefore, a military draft will be necessary in the case of defense of the nation. Either way, no matter how many men, women, sodomites or transvestites we throw at the enemy, it won't matter in the long run.
A lot of good comments...thanks. There's one other element that I think I tried to block from my mind, not even thinking if it this morning, and Ladybug reminded me.if it...the sodomites. Argh. Homosexuals and ladies on the front lines of the American military forces. Almost seems surreal to me that the once tough, don't mess with the US, military manpower has been taken over by political correctness and diluted with women who want to be men and homosexuals so that nobody gets their feelings hurt. The terrorists the world over must sit in their caves, looking at each other and go, "huh"? when they hear, read, and see the crazy antics of this administration, the rise of the sodomites, the takover of the politically correct agenda, and the world's biggest joke of a President who, among other things, doesn't want to offend terrorists by calling them terrorists or associate their religion with their dirty deeds. The sodomites will throw their high heels at the enemy and run away screaming while the women get shot as they are searching for their lip gloss. Ok, maybe that won't be the scenario, but this is all just as ridiculous.

Cook books for cookie cutter people
we are all the same ?
When the pregnant mom is shot in the gut and her innocent baby murdered by this policy, who will be the one saying this is all about choice?
"Where does one go from a world of insanity? Somewhere on the other side of despair."
1 Cor3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 3:20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. 3:21a Therefore let no man glory in men.
This will be tragic for this nation; women are the weaker vessel and need male protection and provision. This coupled with homosexuals in the military will only weaken this nation's defense. Effeminate men and weak women cannot defend this nation. A woman is not designed like a man, we are vulnerable - just look at Eve. We cannot make stern choices when it comes to military decisions, and that will put this nation at risk. The feminists and the butch lesbians will attempt to be masculine, and the results will be tragic. My comfort is knowing this world is not my home! Come quickly Lord Jesus!

I also understood land ownership applied to voting rights, but my thought still stands. I try not to make exceptions the rules when it goes against the "one flesh" principle and what that meant. And I try, although poorly, to not let my culture dictate my thoughts about moral issues.
To me, this is the biggest problem we face today. Everyone wants to be loved and accepted by the lost and unregenerate and they compromise. This of course plays itself out in the dominionist movement or in Christian political activism.
I always cringe when I hear the expression "mother earth". Reminds me of the queen of the heavens thought.
I would say women shouldn't serve in combat regardless of their physical abilities, although you are very correct. Of course they are cooking the books. I think that women should be kept as safe as possible wherever they are and that husbands should protect and provide for them. Now, you and I know that doesn't take place anymore in any society; well except in our genuine Christian communities.
