Limits on women in military required

In reading your article regarding sexual assaults at the U.S. Naval Academy ("Sexual assaults are up at Naval Academy — or are they?" Jan. 8), I can't help but respond. I went into the U.S. Army in August of 1969 when there was no co-ed training in any of the military branches.

If there was sexual harassment, it was an off-duty situation. I strongly believe that women should have every opportunity that the men do but with certain exceptions. I don't think they should train together or share the same barracks or foxhole.

To clean their act up, the military needs to take a step back about 40 years.
