I'm certainly no sexist, but woman, in genera

In the US Army the increased numbers of women was, I think, relatively painless.

Women were in support units, not Combat Arms, so I think their impact was lessened.
Recruiting standards for women were generally higher then for males (meaning the girls were, overall, smarter than the boys, which the women knew all along) and the draft was over so we needed the “bodies” (no joke intended).

I was First Sergeant of a Company in Korea in the 80’s and my barracks was co-ed. I remember the proximity of the female soldiers was far down the list of problems we encountered, whether in garrison or in the field.

For the most part they could handle themselves when problems with sex were involved and were fine soldiers.

Thank you for such an interesting and informative account to my question.

I belong to another group of all vets and serving military.

They report a lot of good things in terms of the gals in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Many are pulling duty and performing far beyond their intended roles.
Overall doing quite well, Some exceptions, of course-but some guys are duds as well.

My buddy's daughter is deploying with the language trained group of women who will be going to the field even with SW to assist in dealing with the female locals.
She will be doing some historic stuff while seeing some intense service.

Aside from the obvious lack of tackle and restrictions to serving in CA MOS's there are really no differences outside the inherent drama of having more than one female in a certain area. There are good ones, there are bad ones, there are middle of the road ones. Just like males.

I do long for the Infantry though.
