Here, I’ll post another e-mail:
“Quick background – West Point grad, former Apache pilot, currently in the National Guard. That line about leadership and discipline being able to keep sexual urges and differences in line is complete crap. Generally in a unit that has strong leadership and good discipline, the effects will be minimized, but they will still be felt.
When a unit has leadership problems, that is where the incidents flourish and the discipline spirals down.
It is hard to be a band of brothers when some brothers are competing to have sex with available sisters.
If you’ll notice the units with the strongest sense of cohesion and discipline do not have any women (Special Forces, Rangers and Infantry in general).”
