    As long as there are no relaxation of standards, and there is no push to get female numbers up in the future, I am fine with this. I am of the opinion that every citizen should have the right to do whatever they want to do as long as they qualify. However, it does not mean I want to see more women in combat, especially if that means you will see more mothers in combat. But if a woman wants to be in combat, there should  be NO hurdles.
