  •  When I joined the service in 1968 one of (7+ / 0-)

    the reasons I chose the Air Force was the electronics training I would receive.  You had to take an aptitude test
    and that determined which field you could enter.

    Some fields provided a better work environment and also better promotion opportunities.  Plus you would have better employment opportunities after you got out.

    Women in the Air Force today now can receive the same training and do the same job I did.  They are better off and so is the service.

    To me you should set the standards needed for the job and allow anyone who meets the standards to fulfill that occupation.
