    While I was in boot camp, during the thang in Vietnam, I was in the first series that were given the M16 for recruit training. Actually, we were issued CAR 15s, but anyway ...

    We were also issued little comic books with voluptuous women teaching us how to clean our rifles. These ladies were wearing Army fatigues. They were also very much 'stacked' women.

    Being trained somewhat by these Babes of Cartoonlandia, I suspect that that was a clever plot to make us all more amenable to women getting into combat.

    Yes. That is what that was. Infiltrating our brains with good looking women, 'handling our rifles'. It was only a period of time until they would begin to infiltrate our Band of Brothers.

    Oh, and the main character was wearing a cute little beret. A diabolical push at having the entire Army wearing berets!

    Women! They are cunning!

    I was in training at Fort Knox in the summer of 1975. They would put about 100 of us in this huge classroom with this huge M-16 on a stand at the front. It came apart to show us the major parts groups. While they showed slides for the training about every 10th slide would be a picture of a nearly nude woman and every head would snap up. The attention span assured until the next such slide appeared. We had women in the class but they didn't get any eye candy. I laugh at this memory and shudder at the reaction if anyone would try that nowadays.

    Also, the Marines are contemplating allowing women to train for MARSOC.

    I wonder, if that was to happen now, how much outrage there would be.

    It wasn't intentional.

    Sorry.
