Frankly, I doubt that female candidates will be held to the same standards, though I have to tell you that in the early days of integrating women into the Military Police we did hold EVERYONE to the same standards of height, weight, physical strength, speed, etc.
In those long ago days, a candidate for MP training had to be "during ZERO WEEK", i.e., before entering MP training:
1. At least 70 inches tall,
2. At least 160 pounds,
3. Able to do 50 pushups,
4. Able to do 10 chin-ups,
5. Run 2 miles, in fatigue uniform & combat boots, in 14 minutes,
6. Have no disfiguring scars or marks on the face or neck
7. Have no visible tattoos, when dressed in the standard short-sleeve MP Tropical Worsted uniform,
8. Scored in the top ten percent on the AFQT
9. Graduated from an accredited high school, with at least a 2.5 GPA, on a 4-point scale.
The "old-school" requirements worked FINE & as long as we were able to enforce those standards on MP candidates we had NO trouble "turning out" high quality apprentice MPs. Then after a while, the MP Corps was "directed by higher authority" that enforcing the SAME STANDARDS of intelligence, education, appearance & strength was "discriminatory" against weak, small of stature and otherwise under-qualified candidates.
ImVho, the SAME "dilution of qualifications" will be required by "higher authority" to assure that women can enter & complete Ranger training.
just my OPINION, sw
