Not Even Half of Female Marines Meet ‘Gender-Adjusted’ Minimum Standards

The Obama administration created a crisis by insisting women be ordered into ground combat firefights, but now it’s time for Congress to step up and solve the problem, says the president of the Center for Military Readiness, a nonpartisan group promoting high standards for military policy.
