For years, the test has included pull-ups, crunches and a three-mile run. But female Marines were allowed to do a much easier exercise on a pull-up bar known as the flexed-arm hang. That will be replaced entirely with pushups, with male and female Marines alike able to achieve top scores only if they do pull-ups.
This is a good transition into a more integrated and well-rounded military. It gives more people the chance to show the military their strength and ability. I think it goes a fair distance in creating equality, and not just between the sexes.
A better military, and a better society. It’s a win- win, if you ask me.
