The first woman did not finish the combat endurance test at the beginning for the course in late September. Twenty-six of the 107 male Marines also did not finish the endurance test. The second woman could not complete two required training events “due to medical reasons,” said Capt. Eric Flanagan, a Marine spokesman. She is receiving treatment and is in “good condition,” Flanagan said, though the Marine Corps is not releasing specifics about her medical condition or any identifying information about either of the women I wonder if the liberal overlords lower the standards to get them in? Don't get me rong there are some females that could pass legit but generally speaking females just aren't built to carry 100+lbs of kit long distances over rough terrrain.
