H/t to Mad Padre reader Dan for pointing me to this interview with a USMC Engineer, Capt, Katie Petronio, who offers these comments, based on her experience in Iraq and Afghanistan, on why the Marine Corps is wrong to consider taking women into the infantry.

Note from her written comments that she is only speaking for the Marines. She deliberately refrains from commenting on similar experiments in the US Army. Readers from other services and other countries can draw their own conclusions, but as Dan noted in his comment, Petronio has written a brave article.
