What Repealing the Combat Exclusion Means For Our Military for Stream.org

October 2, 2015. You don’t make policy that affects our national security and the entire population of young females based on the short-term performance of a few individuals…

August 22, 2015. Fighting ISIS on meth hand-to-hand.  It’s every girl’s dream, right?

CNN Spot: 2 Females Graduate Ranger School – Why Maintain the Combat Exclusion?

August 22, 2015. These are all things that activists for women in combat and those who think they are forward-thinking good feminists brush off as nothing, myths, remnants of archaic patriarchal misogyny in need of re-education and attitude adjustment…

New York Times’ Opinion: Maintain the Combat Exclusion for Women in the Military

August 21, 2015.  Women bear far more risks than men in combat, and once the combat units are opened to women, enlisted women won’t have a choice…

Women in Combat: The Question of Standards for Military Review

March 3, 2015. As traditionally male military occupational specialties (MOSs) are opened to women, the standards are questioned and maligned as unfairly discriminatory as women’s inability to achieve them is exposed…

Combat: Testosterone Required

June 10, 2014.  Are double standards and endemic discouragement of women to train hard to blame for the fact that women continue to wash out of the Marine Corps’ Officer Infantry Course? That is the charge of female Marine Lt. Sage Santangello in an article for the Washington Times…

Women Fail to Achieve Male Marines’ Lowest Standard

January 14, 2014. Earlier this month the Marine Corps decided to delay the low 3 pull-up requirement for women that they had hoped to apply in 2014.  The measure was set in preparation for compliance with the Pentagon’s intent to open combat units to women in 2016.  Since less than half of female recruits could make the minimum requirement by the end of 2013, this implementation is being delayed…

The Real War On Women Is Sending Them Into Combat Book Review

July 24, 2013.  Robert L. Maginnis has done a tremendous service to the debate on opening American combat units to women in his new book, Deadly Consequences: How Cowards Are Pushing Women Into Combat.  This is a must-read for any woman thinking of joining the military and, indeed, anyone with a daughter, sister, or 18-26-year old female loved one.

Let The Men Be Heroes, Because They Are

February 12, 2013. On Thursday January 31,  2012 I had the pleasure of participating in a roundtable discussion on the subject of women in combat roles on the Glenn Beck show (members can view the show in full in the website’s archives).  I didn’t know Green Beret Greg Stube or Navy Seal Pete Scobell before that day, but we got to know each other well over the course of the show and afterward.  I was blown away by their level of sacrifice, what they had endured and overcome, and how they are still serving our country in their current endeavors.  “Heroes” doesn’t begin to cover it…

Women In Combat vs. The Military’s Sexual Assault Problem

February 4, 2013. The Invisible War is a 2012 documentary showing the shocking prevalence of sexual assault in the military, and worse, the cover-ups that tend to follow.  The rate of assaults against women is completely unacceptable as it is.  We should not put women in infantry and special forces where the risk will be even greater to them because there is less supervision, more pressure, and everyone does everything together and in front of each other.  It will be totally destructive of women and combat readiness both…

Careerists vs. Mother Nature

January 29, 2013. In continuing the discussion of opening combat roles to women, we have the argument that women are already there, deploying and fighting in hot zones.  This is true, and it gives us a record of the problems we are already experiencing as a result…

A little ditty about boot camp

Jude served in the Marine Corps from 2004-2008 as an 0651, Data Communications.  In Fallujah she and her unit supported the communications network of 4,000 personnel.  She was also assigned to Entry Checkpoint Duty, frisking women and children for explosives at checkpoints entering the city, working and convoying with the Marine Corps Infantry.
