Female Marines are Rocking Pullups on the New PFT

Some Marines have doubted whether women have the upper body strength needed to do pullups properly, but data from the latest Physical Fitness Tests is proving otherwise. Starting in January, female Marines were no longer allowed do the flexed-arm hang on the PFT. Now, both men and women have a choice between doing pullups and pushups. In 2017, about 9,500 women ― or 65 percent of all female Marines ― opted to do pullups, said Brian McGuire, deputy director of the Marine Corps’ Force Fitness Division. Nearly half of them did enough for ...

These Women Are the Last Thing Standing Between You and Nuclear War

The capsule is the size of a shipping container. At one end is a single bunk sectioned off by a red blackout curtain. At the other is a stall with a toilet and sink, like an airplane bathroom. The air feels that way, too: recycled and somewhat stale. When you're inside these walls, you're 60- to 80-feet below ground, down a groaning freight elevator and through two blast doors, the second of which weighs eight tons and can only be opened from the inside. You've crossed from a dank antechamber over a small walkway into a completely isolated space, suspended within the ...

Verona Veteran Denise Rohan First Woman Elected American Legion National Commander

About 38 years ago, a recruiter from the American Legion came to Army veteran Denise Rohan’s door in Marshall, wanting to speak to her husband, who was also a veteran. Rohan, who now lives in Verona with her husband, Mike, told the recruiter she was also eligible for Legion membership. But he suggested she instead look into the American Legion Auxiliary, made up of women whose relatives served in the military during wartime. While proud to be a military wife, Rohan said, she also had every right to join the Legion. In August, Rohan, 61, became the ...

Army Infantry’s 1st Women, Heavy Packs and the Weight of History

FORT BENNING, Ga. — The first group of women graduated from United States Army infantry training last week, but with soldiers obscured by body armor, camouflage face paint and smoke grenades, it was almost impossible to distinguish the mixed-gender squads in the steamy woods from those of earlier generations. That’s just how the Army wants it. After the Obama administration ordered the military in 2013 to open all combat positions to women, the Army developed gender-neutral performance standards to ensure that recruits entering the infantry were all treated the same. ...
