Why not include the ladies?

Culturally, maybe just put them in non-combat arms MOS's. Let those who want to volunteer for combat arms and then have segregated combat units. We do it at all levels of sports at around 12 years old.

MAJ Montgomery Granger - I was not old enough for the draft. But my brother was. He's pretty sure that combat MOS's were not filled by draftees that "volunteered." I'm not sure of the exact figure, but I believe that 52% of the potential draftees would be females. That means if were "all the same" roughly 52% of the draftees put in combat arms MOS's should be placed in combat arms MOS's. Currently, and for the foreseeable I doubt that the Bell curve for strength, speed, and stamina under a fixed load matches up for men and women. What does fair opportunity for all in the military look like then?

Look at it this way, if the point of fighting is to win, wouldn't you put your best fighters in the fight? And knowing it takes about five non-combat soldiers to support one combat soldier, you have your solution.

At this rate, it is something we might have to do (include all able bodied)
