Women shouldn't be sent into combat

Parker provides good justification

In her column on Jan. 28, Kathleen Parker explained, much more cogently than I could have, her reasons why sending women into combat is a bad idea [“Don’t send women into combat,” Opinion].

I couldn’t agree more that it makes no sense when women have half the upper-body strength of men. Plus the fact that women could well face rape if they should be captured.

--Emily Bone, Renton
