"No Reason" Women Can't Be Navy SEALs, Top Official Says

August 19, 2015 2 min read

Gender barriers are falling! Mere days after the U.S. Army announced two females will graduate from Ranger Schoolfor the first time in history, another military branch is making moves to allow women in its ranks. WOMEN Admiral Jon Greenert, the chief of naval operations, told the Navy Times that if a woman can pass the same tests the men pass, there is no reason they should be barred from fighting. Why shouldn't anybody who can meet these [standards] be accepted? And the answer is, there is no reason," he said. "So we're on a track to say, 'Hey look, anybody who can meet the gender non-specific standards, then you can become a SEAL.'" This is all part of the wave that is opening combat positions to women. Women can't be SEALs just yet but this is a promising step. Even the Marines are thinking about it although at this point it seems less likely to come to a pass. demi2 Want to be a Navy SEAL? Start your training now. There is a 6 month training process which includes 8 weeks of conditioning known as "Hell Week." I've seen G.I. Jane, I would definitely not make it! Two thirds of candidates quit during Hell Week. Can you blame them? According to the website "Sheer fatigue and sleep deprivation will cause every candidate to question h/she's core values, motivations, limits and everything h/she's made of and stands for." Sounds like fun! Mostly, it sounds to me like anyone who survives that training, male or female deserves the right to fight, no matter what. Go get em, girls!
