    This is a bit of a technical question, but I wonder... If women are being treated as equals when it comes to combat operations (or any other front-line military roles), could this ultimately mean women will have the same selective service (i.e. draft) obligations as men, like having to go to the post office & register at 18? I would guess that's something Congress would have to change & can't be done by the Executive Branch alone.
