women should be able to serve in the military because they are becoming more and more powerful in every other aspect of life, why not in the military? As a military hopeful myself, I see no reason for woman to be turned away from the military. If we can pass the same tests as the men and do everyt…hing that they can do, then why would we be turned away because of the way that we were born. Also, the military has education options, like paying for college. If someone said that women don't belong in the military, and should be turned away, then they are also saying that women should be turned away from college options. (MORE)

Throughout American history, Jews have played an important role in the military, dating back to Colonial times. In 1654 Asher Levy, one of the original 23 Jewish settlers of New Amsterdam, demanded the right to stand guard at the stockade. Jews had been previously excluded from the voluntary home gu…ard service, and were forced to pay a compensatory fee for their lack of service. After two years of filing petitions with the colonial court, Levy and his Jewish comrades were permitted to serve. It is important to note that there is no census for religion in the U.S. military; thus, almost no statistics exist for the number of Jews in uniform. Furthermore, based on the Jewish casualties in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is estimated that 30-40% of Jews in the military do not specify their religion. Some Jews anticipate deployment and feel concerned about being identified by the enemy as a Jew. Other Jews simply don't feel the need to express their faith on paper. Undoubtedly some of them fear prejudices and preconceptions. Some known statistics regarding the number of Jews in the U.S. Military are as follows: during World War II, American Jews comprised approximately 3.3% of the U.S. population, while 4.23% of the U.S. Military were Jewish. During World War 2, President Roosevelt praised the fighting abilities and service of Jewish men and women. General Douglas MacArthur in one of his speeches said, "I am proud to join in saluting the memory of fallen American heroes of the Jewish faith." Despite there being no official list of Jewish U.S. service members, one fact remains: the Jewish representation in the military equals at least the Jewish representation in the American population, if not more.

In addition, the number is constantly changing as people are joining or leaving the military or joining or leaving the church.

Answer 1 Yes as nurse or helping civilians or reporter to watch and report soldiers attitude against human rights. As a fighter, woman will not be a woman if she turn to fighter. Women are sign of peace, love, stability and soft hearts, how to turn them to killers with no hearts. I fully support…ed women to fight when defending their kids against enemies, yes kill anybody trying to harm your babies. Answer 2 This is certainly something which depends on your cultural views, but for me, if women truly wish for equality when it comes to voting, land-ownership, and all of the other rights that come with it, they should also have a stake in the defense of the country, even in its most difficult and violent places.

Women serving in the military is a hot topic. Women serving on the front lines is very controversal. I'm not trying to argue against them in service but I am trying to explain the issues. The issue is NOT whether women can do the same work as men. The problem is two fold. First -- Men have this …desire to protect women. So if a woman is fighting with some men, the men may feel responsible for protecting the woman from harm. This may distract them from carrying out their mission. In combat, a soldier sometimes have to ignore the suffering of their comrades in order to complete their mission. Can a man ignore the suffering of a woman? Second -- A group of men can function as a team of buddies when not distracted by the opposite sex. Add a woman to the equation and the men's focus is on the woman and this can break up their team cohesion. (MORE)
