Women just took another hit in their effort to serve in infantry units in the Marine Corps.
The Marine Corps quietly cancelled its new rule that required women to be able to do three pull ups instead of a flexed arm hang, which meant holding one’s chin above the pull-up bar for at least 15 seconds.
Here’s the full story: Marines: Most Female Recruits Don’t Meet New Pullup Standard.
Go read the story and come back and share your thoughts. I’d love to know what you all think, both about the pull-up requirement postponement, and women serving in the infantry.
Keep the faith,
