REPORT: Women Arrive for Marine Infantry Training, Then 1 Requirement Instantly Gets Attacked

By Brett MacDonald AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS

We all knew this was coming: the United States Marine Corp will be relaxing the standards for women entering the service.  While all recruits to the Marines are required to pass an Initial Strength Test and an annual Physical Fitness Test (PFT), the female recruits will no longer have to complete any pull-ups.

This is a dangerous step forward. Members of our armed forces are routinely relying on one another to assist in in moving heavy equipment and most importantly in carrying a wounded comrade. It is imperative that those in the armed forces–especially those that will likely be serving in combat–be able to meet the rigorous demands of the job.

There is no job on this planet as difficult as serving in the military, and as a nation we cannot risk sending our men and women into combat unprepared or unfit for the conditions they’ll be met with.

With that said, female candidates for the Marines will still be strongly encouraged to complete the pull-up minimum despite it no longer being a requisite–the alternative to the pull-up will be a simple arm hang, reports Military.com.

The Marines PFT is based off of a points system, and here is the most striking thing about the change in standards: a woman that completes the arm hanging exercising in lieu of the pull-ups will earn 50 points if she hangs for 70 seconds. If she opts for doing the pull-ups instead, she will earn 51 points.
