For John, BLUF: If we have to walk this cat back it will be difficult. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Mr Leo Shane, III, writing for The Military Times, we have "Services on track to open all military jobs to women". That would be the US Department of Defense and the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps. The lede:
Pentagon officials say all four of the services are on track to open all military jobs to women by next year, and expect rules for those changes to be in place by this fall.The primary objective is good. The question is, what are going to be the secondary and tertiary effects?
