A legendary Marine Sergeant Major is fed up with the Obama administration’s push for women in combat despite overwhelming evidence that it will put Marines lives in danger.
Sergeant Major Justin LeHew, known as “The Hero of Nasiriyah”, took to Facebook after Secretary of the Navy Ray Maybus said the Marines should have chosen better females for the failed mixed gender combat experiment.
In the epic rant, SgtMaj LeHew says:
“…This was as stacked as a unit could get with the best Marines to give it a 100 percent success rate as we possibly could. End result? The best women in the GCEITF as a group in regard to infantry operations were equal or below in most all cases to the lowest 5 percent of men as a group in this test study.
They are slower on all accounts in almost every technical and tactical aspect and physically weaker in every aspect across the range of military operations. SECNAV has stated that he has made his mind up even before the release of these results and that the USMC test unit will not change his mind on anything.”
You read that right, the Secretary of the Navy does not care that integrating women into combat will cost the lives of Marines on the ground. LeHew continues, even giving credit to two women who graduated Ranger School while pointing out the difference between a leadership course and an infantry course:
Listen up folks. Your senior leadership of this country does not want to see America overwhelmingly succeed on the battlefield, it wants to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to pursue whatever they want regardless of the outcome on national security. The infantry is not Ranger School. That is just a school like any other school and is not a feeder specifically to the infantry.
Anyone can go to that school that meets the prereqs, just like airborne school. Kudos to the two women who graduated. They are badasses in their own right. In regards to the infantry… There is no trophy for second place. You perform or die.
Make no mistake. In this realm, you want your fastest, most fit, most physical and most lethal person you can possibly put on the battlefield to overwhelm the enemy’s ability to counter what you are throwing at them and in every test case, that person has turned out to be a man.
There is nothing gender biased about this, it is what it is. You will never see a female Quarterback in the NFL, there will never be a female center on any NHL team and you will never see a female batting in the number 4 spot for the New York Yankees. It is what it is.”
The post has since been taken down.
