There are many aspects of the Combat Medic job that would provide females entering infantry units in such a way their status will encourage the respect and protection of the infantrymen whose lives and limbs will depend upon them. American females will, inevitably, be permitted to serve as infantrymen. But their introduction as infantryman may first have to be established as fully qualified to meet the rigorous demands of frontline combat service. Such exposure can test the best of men.
