Summary
From the Preface: Since the advent of the all-volunteer force in 1973, a major effort for the U.S. Army has been the configuration of a force increasingly dependent on female soldiers. Not the least of the problems demanding solution was the controversy stirred by the integration of men and women recruits in basic combat training. The issues were numerous, complex, and tenacious as the nation's largest military service sought to design a basic training program that met both the goal of military readiness and the increasing demands of women for equality of opportunity and treatment. This volume is an account of the many currents, some ongoing, that informed the Army's struggle to design a basic training course acceptable to the nation's civil and military leadership, the general public, various special interest groups, and the young men and women undergoing their first experience as soldiers. This study employs a mixture of topical and chronological organization. Although there is a brief attention to the long-range historical perspective, the major focus is on the period from 1973 to 2004. The author's aim is to tell the Army's story of mixed-gender training at the initial-entry level. There is no attempt to suggest solutions for past or present problems
