    ...for pregnant females to get out of the military? A girl I knew met a guy while she was over in Iraq (they are in the same brigade). Upon returning from the deployment, then moved in together, got married and now she's pregnant. Apparently she is getting out because she was given the choice. So are they letting pregnant females out of the military or is there more to the story?

    been that way since atleast 2002, probably been that way a long time(since females started joining the military regularly) before that they probably got the boot if they got pregnant.

    It's been this way for a long long long time.

    They have the option when they get their initial counselling. We then have to start the seperation.

    If they chose seperation they are still entitled to free healthcare as long as they do it on a military base.

    my wife told me that marines no longer have the option to get out, because too many females were getting out and then having an abortion or some shit. i have no idea if this is true though.

    I only ask because I hadn't really heard anybody take that option until now.

    I always laugh at how women scream they want to be deployable and want the same rights as men, want to be in combat jobs etc etc...then something like the first Gulf Conflict in the 90's happened and suddenly all these women who hadn't seen their husbands were turning up pregnant on ships and getting sent home:mamoru:

    It's like "Hey wait, aren't you married? And you're 2 months pregnant but haven't seen your husband in 4?":hsugh:

    :o

    I knew of a lot of women that got out of the first Gulf Conlfict by ending up pregnant:o

    I'm going to guess it's through the term of the pregnancy. Hell even people who seperate don't get base privledges, let alone medical.

    as a female, you can:

    a) get out or
    b) sham like a fucking piece of shit at all times because you are a "single mother"...

    As we get closer to deployment all our females grow more and more fertile. Losing one a week it seems.
