    SERE the gender neutral standard?

    Let me start off with NO. Its not. They are NOT a combat arms AFSC. They're survival instructors. They do NOT go into harms way and take the fight to the enemy. They DO NOT go into harms way and rescue downed pilots. They might assist in the planning, but they are not part of the package that goes out and gets the folks that are in trouble.

    THEY ARE NOT THE GENDER NEUTRAL STANDARD.

    I'd like to believe that SERE could teach downed female airmen how to avoid being raped by fanatic al-Qaeda adherents, but what al-Qaeda adherent wouldn't take a shot at a US female service member?

    For jikes sakes, the US military has a rape problem internally. I can't imagine that presenting the distastefulness of rape to a US servicemember will prevent the al-Qaeda bastards that already have no respect for women will follow our respect for women.

    Thats fine. I'm coming from an all male AFSC. Therefore I have a vested interest in the integration of women into it. I'm not a against it, but dont compare my job to SERE. Thats what I was getting at.

    There is a lot of physical endurance required for SERE instructor. This is probably one of the most demanding career fields there is. I think many beret types get butt hurt and try to put them down but it is my understanding they are the elite. I don't think many beret wearers will say something to a SERE instructor's face. To be honest...I think many are scared of them.

    No argument from me! THere is a difference between being integrated in a training scenario and in the real deal.

    Bru found us all out. Good work. We're also terrified of the Boy Scouts of America.
