Lance Cpl. Remedios Cruz, Marine Aircraft Group 12, recites the Oath of Enlistment after being meritoriously promoted at Anderson AFB, Guam, Dec. 4, 2013. (Lance Cpl. Richard Currier/Marine Corps)

Remedios Cruz joined the Marine Corps in 2013 as a supply clerk. One year later, she completed infantry training, and in 2017, made history when she became one of three females to join 1st Battalion, 8th Marines at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

Now, Cruz is awaiting separation from the Marine Corps after pleading guilty to maintaining a romantic relationship with a subordinate.

Cruz, 26, eventually married the person, who was a lower-ranking Marine in her unit, according The New York Times.

“The biggest mistakes I’ve made in the infantry were from my personal relationships,” Cruz told the Times. “I really want to move on.”...

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

Far worst!

Only reason this is a "story" she's female.

Most "males" cannot complete the training this Marine did.

She screwed up, she's being separated, happens everyday,,,,,to males.

There is plenty of love in the armed services, happens ALL the time!

Officers and NCO's are not allowed to "love" folks that work for them, are in the direct chain of command, if they are of lessor rank, is the big one.

NCO's and Officer's being together, getting off into a nasty ass grey area for command taking a dim ass view of their actions.

GI's are on duty 24/7/365, private life's, are never private in the service.

"Good order and morale" covers everything, as well as, "conduct unbecoming" an officer or NCO.

A very good friend, a CSM fell in love with a very lovely lady, a Lt. Colonel, and he retired before command slammed them.
Both were assigned to same hospital, how they met, in my living room, and got to know one another.


That was one nice military wedding, we pulled out all the stops on that one.

My information is dated, retired in late 91.

Under wartime conditions females can fill some military occupations,,, physical requirements being the dividing line,,, social engineering has no physical requirement,,, and should not be used to degrade our military.

We should only use women when we need them in the military,,, right now we only need a few good men who are willing to give up their constitutional rights for a given period of time in service to their country,,, that done then go about their business as civilians.

I'm with Martin in this regard. A country that without reason allows it's mothers, daughters, and grand daughters, in the name of equality/sexual politics, the opportunity to be shipped home from some foreign entanglement in an aluminum shipping container has fallen far and deep.

Well,

If the draft ever does become reality in the US my family will be leaving the US. My daughter will not be drafted.

"Males" never got 'training' like THAT!!!

Was bullshit, still is.
And we are seeing the result of this social manipulation.

And horseshit!

If the "fix" was in, why is she being discharged, removed from the course?

If the obammy administration changed the requirements, and I don't know, I don't keep up on it anymore, that was plain ass wrong.

Women in direct combat, all depends on the woman.

Yep. Agree. I see military posts and fences around chemical plants staffed by chiXX. Looks like the muz won. This is in Tex and La. the men look pretty much like the chicks. This ain’t you’re father’s CORP.

I don't have a problem with women in the military,doing certain non-martial arms jobs. Particulary when they volunteer. They free up men to do other heavy lifting and dangerous jobs. Some jobs they are better suited then men. I do think standards should be equal,as in equally very high.

I don't know what the training is like these days.

I had two buddies who joined a while back (early 1990's). One was in good shape, but kind of a screw up. The other was a big guy but definitely over weight, out of shape, AND a screw up. They both made it through the training.

So...

I don't know what training they do nowadays that is so easy a chick can pass it.

I don't either.
I retired in late 91 after the storm.
I had a bunch of ladies (medics) that go around, and they, frankly did very well.
They went where they were told to go and they got the job done.
My son retired from the Marines, 21 years, thinking about this thread, I never heard him mention female Marines good or bad.
And like all Marines he was not shy to offer an opinion.
Most women can't hump 75 pounds of gear, weapons, ammo, rucks, boots, uniforms, food, water, etc.
Then again, most men can't hump half their body weights either.
I'd prefer women not suffer the rigors of ground combat at all, under any circumstance.
But then again, I'd prefer that no man suffer the rigors of ground combat at all, under any circumstances too!
If the politicians, in and out of uniform,,,, push women into direct ground combat operations, then we'll all see what will happens.
I suspect it will be very bad.
But sometimes, bad shit has to happen before people wake the hell up.
Direct Combat support, the ladies do just fine in many jobs.


Once upon a time, not that long ago, people, most people, made the argument that blacks were simply not smart enough to fly high performance combat aircraft.
That bigotry destroyed itself in 1944/45, 1950/53 and from late 1959 thru 1973 and in every war we've fought since.

Because once they "proved" that womenz "could do it the same as man" nobody cared anymore.... Their agenda was fufilled.

You know they care about the agenda, not the troops.

I definitely see that there are some jobs in the military women could do.

Overall in my interactions with them and seeing unit dynamics in person, I think it's a very bad idea to put women in combat at all. I've actually seen women soldiers complain about the weight of their body armor and gear and seen male soldiers swoop in to carry that crap for them on exercise. I've also seen women soldiers unable to hold their M9 up or their M4 up to shoot. How's that going to work in combat?

Then you add in all the sex issues and emotional up and downs and I just don't think that's a great idea for a combat unit.

I think right now as a society with the smaller wars we are fighting we can get away with these little experiments. The number of people that die from it is small enough the politicians can hide it or explain it away. But if we have a real no crap world war go down it will be a disaster on a mega scale.
