    Female soldiers from Fort Campbell deploying to Afghanistan will field the first Army body armor that is shorter and better tailored specifically to fit women's physiques. (Sept. 18)

    Army Tests Body Armor Made for Female Soldiers

    Nice how at the end they show an enemy how to quickly remove it in hand to hand combat so they can get at vital organs swiftly...
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    You'd just have to get close enough and hope they don't just stand there and let you do that.

    You just ask her how she feels emotionally about fighting and grab the strap as she stands their pondering what to say....

    The military needs to hurry up and stop being so dumb and open a contract with pinnacle. My buddy's dad owns the company locally and I got to wear a set when I was running missions in Iraq (had to sign a release of benefits though if I died) but being a comms operator the dragon skin dropped 30lbs off my total pack weight and gave me more mobility. I had no family and my parents would rather me be more protected then receive my life insurance money. But that stuff was legit. Easy to move and so much more practical.

    As for the female combative... There is no females that go directly into combat, however females do go into convoys and they do travel. If there convoy is under attack they will have to be put in a position to defend them selves and fight back. I have a good friend I just meet who just made chief in the Navy but got medically retired because she got shot and then blown up and broke her neck during the explosion. What a fucked up way to get hit. I have no clue how she made it but after many surgeries you would never notice she was injured with out the exception of a HUGE scare from the neck surgery. Looks like some one slit her neck.

    Those weaves can be so dense and full of glue that they out perform kevlar...

    What we need is to outfit all the humvees with bigfoot tires and heavily armor the undercarriage, we are losing way too many to ied's, way too many limb losses too.

    What we need to do is get the fuck out. We are accomplishing nothing. We pulled out of Iraq the wrong way. That place went to shit which pisses me OFF!! because I gave blood and tears there lost many friends to make a difference and Obama fucks it up with the way he removed troops. I feel like my friends died for nothing. PTSD was in check until I read about how Iraq is going to shit again. Only war we need to be fighting is the war on unemployment. We need to figure out how America can make more money off of our resources and boost our economy. We need to fucking kill every environmentalist and start drilling and sale our oil to our neighboring countries.

    Women aren't necessarily in "combat" when deploying to the sandbox. They are in other deployed units, like support, medical, air operations, logistics, etc...they still have to wear Kevlar vests, a weapon, and full desert fatigues, they just aren't in the infantry division.
    There are desginated COMBAT ZONES in which many military and civilian personnel are deployed to, but this does not mean they are in infantry combat. This also does not mean that they are at less of risk of being killed while operating either. There is always a chance for road side bombings, or rebelling religious cartels to shoot up field hospitals, or supply quarters. Women are expected to know how to carry and shoot a military supplied weapon in case of situations such as these.

    Either way I think it's a great idea they are finally fitting women for the underarmour gear in the Army. The Marines already was issuing the desert khaki underarmour with uniform issues for deployed and continental us servicing active duty. The Marines also were the first to go digitized on the uniforms back in 2002. Army takes a little longer to pick up the pace seems like when it comes to equality for women in the branch, but it's a good thing they are doing it!
