    What happened to the good ol' days? On our off time we would hit the beach on liberty, get drunk, call home and spend money. Those so inclined would visit the local brothels and discos. Anyone who was gay was sent home with a bad conduct discharge. Not that I necessarily agree with that but the Navy has gone wayyyy overboard by celebrating drag queens in the ranks.

And only the men who can do that should be qualified.

    There shouldn't be a single male who can't make the test wearing a tab. That a man can do more than the test is irrelevant. If more is required, then put it on the test.

    The fact is, the test is a minimum, and I'd rather have a woman beside me who can do more than the test than a man who can barely pass it.

    Given a woman who can pass the test, whatever it is, and man who can't, there simply isn't a cogent argument for taking the man.
    I don't know how I missed this the first time around. the part about picking up something heavy and carrying it.

    The US Army PT test in the 1960's when training was segregated by sex actually measured useful strength, instead of how many pushups,situps, etc.
    The PT test HAD to be passed before you could graduate from Basic Training, if you could not pass it, you were recycled back thru Basic until you could. After training, when assigned to a regular unit, the test had to be passed annually.

    One of the events was the 150 yard man carry. You had to pick up another man your own size, and carry him 150 yards in a certain amount of time. That is harder than it sounds. Why was this event deemed important? It simulated picking up a wounded soldier and carrying him to safety.

    Yeah, the military sure was different back in the day.

    Wow. I remember how my parents chased my sibs and me out of the room when this stuff would come on tv. I also remember watching the soldiers coming home late at night we would sometimes sneak a watch on the portable tv if we had the chance.

    Most of my female classmates wore the colored bracelets with the name of an MIA soldier. They didn't take them off until they came home. Unless they didn't. I guess they would just take them off.

    I hope James Morland had a chance to peek at that bracelet on her wrist from beyond the veil. May his soul rest in peace.

    There was a follow up to that, where she attended the funeral, and put the bracelet in the casket.
    Very touching.
    I really enjoy On The Road segments, there are hundreds on Youtube. Each one is inspirational and makes a person feel good. I highly recommend them.
