GI Jane – what happened?

Comment:

The movie GI Jane, starring Demi Moore, was our first foray into the idea that women warriors could serve in the Seal Teams. It would seem, at least at this point, that the dream is in free fall.

A female Navy officer, a Seal training candidate, dropped out of the Seal traning program.

To be fair, to even qualify for BUDs training you must achieve minimum PST, Physical Selection Training Test – qualification is no easy task….most men couldn’t pass those ‘standards.’ [1] [2]

Navy SEAL PST Standards

PST Event Minimum Standards Competitive Standards
500 Yard Swim 12:30 8 Minutes
Pushups 50 80-100
Sit-ups 50 80-100
Pull-ups 10 15-20
1.5 Mile Timed Run 10:30 9-10 Minutes

Candidate to be first female Navy SEAL officer quits after a week: report

A woman aiming to become the first female Navy SEAL officer quit about a week into the initial training, Task and Purpose reported Thursday.

The unidentified female candidate dropped out in early August during a three-week course in San Diego that began July 24. It was the first assessment of potential SEAL officers before they can be sent on to more grueling courses, according to the website, which cited “multiple Naval Special Warfare Command sources.”

Two women, whose names were not released to protect their privacy, entered the famously difficult SEAL training program this summer more than a year and a half after the military allowed female troops to serve in combat roles.

The candidate who dropped out was enrolled in the Navy SEAL Officer Assessment and Selection program. If she had completed the program, she would have faced an officer selection panel and the Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL program, or BUD/S, a six-month training course for the elite special operators.

    no disgrace by dropping out. Give her an applause for at least being willing to try. Many of us were God troops and performed our assigned duties with honor and sccomplshment. However many of us who met minimum stardards were not previdged to try to join elite special ops groups. Some special trading requried 20/20 non corrected visual acuity, others certain educational levels; various other “above min enlistment” requirements kept many out of special trading. My aptitude scores wee high enough for flight trains, but wearing classes prohibited 🚫 That option. But was happy for friends who became pilots and every once in a while gave me ride. Bottom not everyone can become all things….the military ask only you give your very best, whether that is damn goo d 1st cook or a screaming eagle

    War movies are political propaganda, usually against our sovereignty and blessings of selfless men-and women whose dream and desire was to become sacrificial and willingly, wittingly they went because the truth therein is found as the most rare diamond.
    I’ve watched GI Jane and it is twisted and counterfeit, bears some semblance of reality, but so did Eden’s snake. This being said, there are interlopers and lesser men who have been given a pass by a command element itself given a pass and the cherished honor of service has become for many, deploy to make big money; measure the impact zone radius so YOUR write up for that Purple Heart will get approved. Fabricated decorations awards that will assist in promotion scores, like the Bronze Star.
    We call them cowards, POGs, FOBBITS. Women are a mirror image. They have their own mafias, lesbian mafias, all under an oath real men and women have cherished in deeds, asking nothing to their last breath. The real issue here is the culture being recruited and promoted, the leaders decapitated because they have honor and will not be manipulated.
    This is how you gut America, quietly, from the inside.
    I have deployed with women, and like men it depends on the heart, the mind, the soul, and the honor. I am on the cusp of simply not giving a shit any longer. Good has flinched and understood Evil and had compassion for it. Evil has raged for eight years and the insurrection since election night is an ATTACK. Has not one thing to do with Trump but he is the 5 meter target.

    I’m only surprise the ACLU hasn’t stepped in and relegated to the trash bin the obviously sexist SEAL team standards along with crosses on war memorials. Let us pray: “Oh Lord if you truly exist save this country for our children and are grandchildren even though we as a country have kicked you out of our schools, our government and the market square.”It seems the only place you are allowed in is hanging as bling around a rapper’s neck. And soon Allah’s foothold in America will become a stranglehold and there will be no SEAL teams to stop the NIKE wearing hoards from storming the gates and walls of the elites who invited you in.
