Yes I have, but I have also seen situations where a fraction of a second in reaction time has made the difference between life and death, and I know what THAT is like, too.

Like I said, both sexes have physical advantages and disadvantages in modern combat.

From the female snipers in Russia, to the female Viet Cong and NVA jungle fighters in Vietnam, to the Israeli Caracal Battallion, women have proven themselves in combat too many times across too many battlefields for far too long to seriously question their abilities as fighting infantry.
