This is how you advance in the OFFICER CORPS? [url]http://www.washtimes.com/national/20010802-96583683.htm[/url] Disclosure of the officer's two written complaints add new details to the scope of the IG probe. [b]The officer did not sign either document.[/b] But a source familiar with the investigation said the officer is a woman who was offended by the treatment women receive at command headquarters in Miami. A significant part of the complaint deals with the weekly command run, in which military personnel were required to run for about 30 minutes in a park near the headquarters. Gen. Pace has terminated the run. The officer complains of a "hostile atmosphere toward women" and says[b] female officers were boycotting the run[/b] because of a deliberate attempt to discriminate against women. "They have done so by creating a U.S. Southern Command running standard that targets women for failure," the officer charges. "They follow up this standard by intentionally leading command runs at a pace and a distance that exceeds their fictitious standard and the result is that [b]nearly all the women fall out of the run.[/b] This discrimination does not satisfy their egos. "They rub salt into the wound by ridiculing these officers and sailors in open command forums. Everyone in the command knows that they are focusing on the women in the command," the officer said. The officer adds, "The perception in the command is that Gen. Pace knows of this behavior and condones it. He has been informed of this problem and has taken no steps to alleviate the discrimination." The complaint charges that two generals on Gen. Pace's staff "terrorize the officers in the command and abuse their power on a daily basis." The officer contends that one general made a racially offensive remark by saying the "right side won" in a Civil War battle in which the South emerged victorious.

Well I have some comments! [b]"nearly all the women fall out of the run"[/b] Which means that some women are ABLE and MOTIVATED to push themselves to the limit and then push some more to RAISE THEIR LIMIT! [b]"the officer did not sign either document"[/b] Which tells me that she does not have COURAGE OF HER CONVICTIONS. [b]"female OFFICERS were BOYCOTTING the run"[/b] These officers are not setting a good example for the female enlisted personal. If I were serving under these officers I would be hard pressed to preform my duties.

What have we been talking about with women in the military. You know its these feminist nazis that are bantering on about equality of the sexes. Well step up to the plate and prove it. The fact that she isn't willing to push herself farther and harder just shows she shouldnt be an officer. [sniper]

Well the officer who wrote the complaint should be aware that a service member, whether Officer or enlisted, cannot boycott jack. To do so would make you absent from your appointed place of duty, and can result in NJP or Court Martial.

"The officer contends that one general made a racially offensive remark by saying the "right side won" in a Civil War battle in which the South emerged victorious." HUH? How's that racially offensive? Boy, and I thought there were some whiners on this board...she takes the prize hands down.
