If Holly Mangold wants to rip a terrorist's throat out with her bare hands and can display she has the physical capabilities...I say have at it.
I actually fought. As an infantryman and an atilleryman. I never had any midgets. THe men had to cary heavy equipment and handle heavy equipment. I did not get to pick my men so they were assigned a specilaty well before they assigned to a unit. Guys not combat fit were in supply and other support functions.
As for someone like Holly Mangold - she is totally unfit for combat - way too fat, no mobility.
