Spartans take lead on historic military endeavor

The command team of the 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team “Spartans”, 3rd Infantry Division, sits down with members of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, and the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, as well as key leaders and staff members from the 3rd Infantry Division and the Spartan Brigade here, Jan. 24. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the role the 2nd ABCT was taking in spearheading the Physical Demands Study in collaboration with U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, and the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, in order to gather the necessary data required to determine if the integration of females into those military occupational specialties currently closed to women is feasible, and if it is, to better determine how to go about doing so.

This is just one small part of the rigorous train-up for the PDS that the Dragons have been spearheading. The desired result is that 2nd ABCT, in conjunction with U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, and the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, will conduct a thorough evaluation, gathering as much data as possible, hopefully allowing the Army to develop "gender neutral physical standards." These validated standards are intended to shape future recruiting and accessions of both males and females into the evaluated Military Occupational Specialties. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt.
