    Women can serve in non-combat Army roles, but for the Military the exceptions, are in the Air Force & Navy.....Why? Women can be good pilots, & on board ships as navigators etc......Chances of individual females (Air Force & Navy) facing directly (on the ground) male adversaries are less likely. As an Ole Salt, I stand to be corrected and be convinced otherwise.

    Tks Popeye....Wow! But not my time. Our SWANs never served on board ships, so too the British WRENs. They were employed with Comms, Ops' Rooms, Intel, Clerks/Admin Branches of the Navy (WW II - 1960s). Anyway who am I to argue as recruitment "Man" power is lacking these days, & women are also tech-savvy. Cheers Popeye. (BTW, high heels not recommended on board ships - photo above. However those with boots "are made for walking" /marching smartly" OK.

    If you check the Brave Women in the Armed Forces of the World thread you will see many women of the USN serving in many different ratings. I never served aboard a ship that had women aboard. That happened just a few years after I retired, in 1991, from the USN.

    An independent formation of 55 female honor guards of the People's Liberation Army makes its debut during a welcome ceremony in Beijing on Wednesday. The female guards, who used to stand with the male honor guards since their debut in 2014, are appearing as an independent formation for the first time. (Photos/Xinhua)

    Wei Huixiao, 40, is expected to become the country's first female navy captain after enlisting more than six years ago, the PLA Daily reported.

    Wei is now making preparations for an all-around assessment training for captains and "only one step away from being the PLA Navy's first female captain,” the report read.

    Wei joined the navy right after earning a doctoral degree in geoscience in February 2012 from Sun Yat-sen University in Guangdong province, becoming a member of China's first aircraft carrier Liaoning. That October, she became the marine department's first female deputy director.

    Wei studied at the PLA Dalian Naval Academy for navigation command and naval tactical command starting in August 2012, acquiring a bachelor's degree in military science.

    Wei became deputy captain of the Changchun destroyer in March 2016, the first female deputy captain in PLA Navy history, after passing the assessment.

    Wei was appointed intern captain of a Zhengzhou missile destroyer under the East China Sea Fleet in September 2017.

    Wei, a Party member, was born in November in 1977 and is from Baise, Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, an old revolutionary base.

    Wei also has a bachelor's degree in atmospheric sciences from Nanjing University.

    Before joining the navy, Wei worked at telecommunications giant Huawei, and volunteered in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and as a teacher in the Tibet autonomous region.
