US Army’s “Warrior of the Year” is Feminist Joke

By Debbie Schlussel

I guarantee you Al-Qaeda and others around the Muslim world–99% of whom are bent on destroying us–aren’t using feminism to pick a tiny chick (or any chick at all) as their Jihadist of the Year.  But that’s essentially what the U.S. Army did in picking Sherri Gallagher as its first female “Best Warrior of the Year.” It’s demoralizing for our fighting men, especially since it’s clear she was picked solely because of female plumbing.  The fact that the Army’s website touts her as its first female awarded this title makes it clear this was an affirmative-action-by-vagina pick.  It’s the Jessica Lynch Bronze Star BS . . . all over again.  Lynch did not deserve the Bronze Star, nor does Gallagher deserve this award.  But they both have the essential element the politically correct forces running the military want:  estrogen.

Gallagher might be able to beat me up and fight many men. I’d bet most male warriors would easily turn her into the first quickly dead female Warrior of the Year, in a mano-a-womano contest.  She may be a great shot.  I’ll give her that.  But, at 5’4″, she’s tiny, and would be easily broken.  Her size and gender aren’t her fault and shouldn’t be held against her, but to claim she’s the U.S. Army’s “Best Warrior” is simply absurd.  The U.S. Army’s Best Warrior competition is described as the Superbowl for America’s top Army soldiers. Does a 5’4″ woman really even belong as a competitor, much less the title holder?  It’s like giving a WNBA player the title of best player in the NBA, when none of those chicks could beat my brother’s junior high school basketball team.

While it’s all good and fine to show Muslims that we don’t treat women like they do, this is going overboard. It’s ridiculous. And it’s less about showing Muslims how to treat women, than preaching to men in the U.S. Armed Forces that women are not just equal to them but “better” in physical prowess. It’s just a lie. (And if we were really concerned with showing Muslims how to treat women, we’d forbid the hijab, niqab, and any other form of Muslim rag-garb for property-ettes. And we’d pretty much outlaw most Islamic law on divorces, wills, property, marriage, etc. Instead, we pander to and cower versus their views on women.)

A life-long friend of mine who recently retired from three decades in the U.S. Armed Forces writes:

What a crock, all 5′ 4″ of her. I cannot believe that there wasn’t some Ranger/Special Forces/Airborne/Infantryman that was not heads and shoulders above her, physically and in the events. Sure, she is a great shot, but can she carry a 150 pound ruck? I doubt it.

Click onto the links from the story and see the events. Hand to hand combat? Give me a break. This is just the kind of story that the feminazis use to argue that women should be in the combat arms.

Amen. It’s absurd to think this chick could beat anyone up but fellow girls and small men. That’s it, despite what the tough action chick movies tell us. It’s as realistic as tiny Angelina Jolie kicking the ass of beefy six-foot-tall men in “Salt.” It just ain’t gonna happen in real life. And the battlefield is real life–real life in which a 5’4″ chick will never be the U.S. Army’s “Best Warrior” or even it’s “5,372nd Best Warrior.”

My own cousin–who currently serves in the U.S. Armed Forces and is big, tall, and extremely physically fit (rappelling upside down from buildings)–earned the U.S. Air Force’s equivalent title to “Best Warrior” for airmen serving in Europe (he did tours in Iraq and Afghanistan).  And he’d kick Ms. Gallagher’s butt.

This Thanksgiving, Sherri Gallagher might wanna give thanks that the Army fraudulently awarded her with its “Best Warrior” title off the battle field. Because on the battlefield, I’m thankful she isn’t the Best Warrior we have to offer. I’m thankful that on the battlefield, we have many Best Warriors far better than her.

And they all have a penis.

Oh G-d, she is not even in good condition. Look at the size of her hips and butt!!!!!

Besides have girly bits, what was the justification of the award?

Jonathan E. Grant on November 23, 2010 at 1:38 pm

Actually, I just read the qualifications for the award.

The award has nothing to do with combat or being a warrior. From what I gather, much of the award is dependent upon the ability to shoot, which is where men and women can compete, if a woman has had years of experience, and strong legs and arms.

However, can one really say that she could win in the other categories, such as hand to hand combat? I severely doubt that she could take on a 6′ 200 lb man.

Jonathan E. Grant on November 23, 2010 at 1:43 pm

    Jon, agreed. But very few soldiers are going to actually get in such close quarters in real life. They’d shoot the enemy dead first. And when you can pick off the enemy with rifle shots, then your relative size and strength don’t matter as long as you know what you’re doing.

    NormanF on November 23, 2010 at 1:47 pm

I think your criticism is overstated. If we’re talking about only using a weapon, that equalizes matters. You would have no chance as a female against a male assailant in close quarters just fighting with your fists. With a gun, the tables are turned and now you’re on a level playing field and your natural disadvantages aren’t so insurmountable. And in the virtual battlefield of the future, gender won’t matter so much. Israeli women in the IDF can fight an entire war behind a bank of computer screens. So unless this gal is in hand to hand combat, as long she can shoot from a distance, don’t be so quick to write her off.

NormanF on November 23, 2010 at 1:44 pm

    I went thru airborne and ranger schools at Benning, then was assigned to an Infantry Bn in Germany as an Infantry Platoon Leader, so I know what it takes to be a WARRIOR. Trust me when I say that this young female soldier, for all her attributes, especially her marksmanship skills, is NO Warrior. Look again at her specialty, her MOS. In my opinion this is an EEO ploy. the Army’s senior leadership needs a poster girl to spur recruitment of females, to let them believe their femininity is no handicap to service in the Army. Let’s be honest. Practically any male soldier, certainly one in a combat unit, picked at random, would be more than this excellent young woman could handle in a fight. In my view, she would be more of a liability than an asset in a situation demanding warrior skills and, trust me, those situations occur every day in a combat zone. Shame on the Army’s leadership for allowing this to happen. How could US Army Sergeants Major have let this happen?? Lastly, I saw the competition and few if any of those competing were the cream of the combat units. Just look at their assignments. Sad, very sad. The Taliban, North Koreans, Chinese, etc., must be falling down laughing.

    Gene on December 13, 2010 at 10:06 pm

If she is such a great “warrior”, then she should be transferred to the front lines in Afghanistan or Iraq? I would think she would be embarrassed to wear this honor knowing it is the men in battle who are warriors, not her.

Duane on November 23, 2010 at 1:51 pm

She is cadre down at the Infantry school. She has no deployments, because she is there in the marksmanship unit and that is her job in the Army. I am not a fan of the warrior-ethos mentality, and if we are to have a “Best Warrior” competition, I would hope that it would include those who at least went to war. I could see her going for “Soldier of the Year”, but best warrior should be a title for a warfighter.

Pat on November 23, 2010 at 1:58 pm

Um, mano-a-mano is spanish for hand-to-hand not man-to-man. It tends to get misused, but “it does not mean what you think it means”.

D: I know. But it sounded dumb to say, “mano-a-woman-mano.” DS

Dave on November 23, 2010 at 2:17 pm

It was a good admission there. I’m a stickler for tradition and using masculine pronouns in English is normally understood to encompass all of humanity. The feminists made an issue with the language where no controversy ever existed before.

NormanF on November 23, 2010 at 2:29 pm

Great shot????? Yes, I am. I am (was) one of the best, and have the awards to prove it. But, that is one tiny aspect to the overall picture. Give me a break! Im 50 years old and feel I could do better even as a D.A.V. In my best days, I could not qualify even to compete on this level!

E-6 USN(ret) on November 23, 2010 at 2:35 pm

Sorry, but best Warrior award should go to the best warrior, not to someone who is a soldier 10,000 miles away.

Jon Grant on November 23, 2010 at 2:45 pm

To be honest with you folks here, I think this Sherri Gallagher lady is attracting looking to me (yes there are some men who are attracted to women who are voluptous, average, about-average, few extra pounds & full figured), to Jonathan Grant, with all due respect do you prefer an “airbrush” woman that you see in adult films? I’m just asking you a question bro, I’m not trying to be a wise guy or get on your bad side. But for Mrs. Gallagher, no I don’t think she should be in our military, and from what I’ve seen in her pics, she doesn’t quite look like she’s in shape (and I agree with you on that Jonathan Grant), she can atleast support our brave troops fighting in combat right now, but from my opinion, I really don’t think she should be in combat.

Sean R. on November 23, 2010 at 3:15 pm

In a soldier, I prefer people who are fit, not pear shaped. That goes for enlisted and officers, men and women.

Why do you have to make a personal attack and go on about my “porn preferences?”

Jon Grant on November 23, 2010 at 3:28 pm

Men fight. Women are what they fight FOR.

WAKE UP on November 23, 2010 at 3:33 pm

Jessica Lynch shouldn’t have been in the military either.

WAKE UP on November 23, 2010 at 3:34 pm

Jon, your right, those who are physically in shape should enlist in the military, if there out of shape, then forget about it. Your also right, those who apply for jobs as a firefighter or police office should be in shape, and it doesn’t matter if there men or women, just as long affirmative action is NOT being used in order to get the job.

And I apologize for bringing up adult film preference as you mentioned, I was not trying to be a wise guy or try get you upset.

Sean R. on November 23, 2010 at 4:44 pm

I understand your thrust here, DS. However, I seem to recall that women have fulfilled combat roles in the Israeli armed forces for years and sent many a muzzie martyr to his unholy reward.

Graty Slapchop on November 23, 2010 at 4:55 pm

Maybe she’s pregnant.

Could’ve been worse though; they could have picked a Muslim, unless the solider of the years is already one. You never know.

Little Al on November 23, 2010 at 6:52 pm

I bet if you look at the rest of the competition you will see that not many infantry types even took part in the farce. The warrior ethos is a good thing but the Army really needs to apply it to the edge of the spear…not the shaft.

Sheepdog on November 23, 2010 at 6:58 pm

I don’t think there is a more politically correct group of people than the high ups in the American military. I watched jim jones last night on c span talking about the israel/palestine situation and he didn’t tell me anything. Gates is the same way. The military is the last place political correctness belongs its gonna get people killed like ft. hood did.

tyler on November 23, 2010 at 7:30 pm

A couple of years ago the MDOC officer of the year was a similar “spinner” type. She was working at a boot camp. Non-violent offenders only are kept there. So the officer who has had to break up the riots in the visitor rooms up north or subdue inmates that are inflicting real bodily harm on nursing staff, get the usual ignored response. But the little female that looks ridicules in a picture next to avg size humans is the correction officer of the year. Not to me.

samurai on November 23, 2010 at 8:39 pm

Her physical shape is just so typical of the military women I’ve been forced to carry. Her hips are bigger than the 6 ft tall men next to her. What a SHAM!!!! Put her “Warrior” ass in the real combat area. Make a small squad of all females so we don’t have to worry about her getting knocked up as fast.

samurai on November 23, 2010 at 8:44 pm

So this is the new Army of One. LMAO

This guy was obviously over qualified for the “warrior of the year award” for actually being a warrior:

Staff Sergeant Salvatore Giunta will be awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions in Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley, an area called the Valley of Death. In October of 2007, during Operation Rock Avalanche, an ambush of at least a dozen Taliban fighters attacked Giunta’s company and left two of his fellow soldiers dead. Had it not been for Giunta, it would have likely been more, if not all, of the platoon.

ender on November 23, 2010 at 8:47 pm

I’m uninformed on this particular soldier but I wholeheartedly agree with DS’s general thesis of someone getting an award for PC reasons alone. It’s something I can stand.

At one time, nothing pleased me more than thinking a broad could whoop a man’s arse…until I grew up and understood the physics of it (virtually, the exception more than the rule) and understood what I wamted to be real was virtually impossible to be real. Sorry, but chicks CANNOT compete physically with males.

Here is a cheesy video I loved in the 80’s

Now it’s embarrassing (not ‘cuz it aged) but because it’s total fantasy.

I do NOT watch any female superhero movies (unless it’s like Wonder Woman) because it’s just a CROCK to me.

I do love chicks doing male things (motorcycling, smoking cigars etc.) but I am now realistic about what is truth and NOT.

Skunky on November 23, 2010 at 9:04 pm

P.C. is killing us all over, not just in the military (witness the current TSA fiasco). I think it was in the 70s when the army tried to send a company of women recruits through the same baic training as men, at Fort Leonard Wood. Not a single one made it. So they separated the combat arms, and watered down the others. An army officer wrote about this in a book entitled Weak Link. Before this, women (WACS) were separated from the men and the men went through basic infantry training.

Smitty on November 23, 2010 at 9:40 pm

Tyler is right, PC is more important than anything else today. Read “weak Link-the Feminization of the Military” by Brian Mitchell, about how this came about. Basic training has been watered down, only the combat arms go through what was once required of every soldier. The army tried sending a company of women through infantry basic (mid 70s?) at Leonard Wood; and not a sinle one made it. So they kept it tough for combat arms and watered it down for the rest- where there are women.

Smitty on November 23, 2010 at 10:22 pm

If that is our best I don’t even want to consider what that means for the average or the less than average members. We are finished. I could take this little girl out in ten seconds and I am a very old man. The best you can be? What a sick joke.

Bill Ford on November 24, 2010 at 7:36 am

Women in the IDF do go through full combat training like the men do but no one would think of assigning to serve on the front. They fill support roles that allow the men to do what they do best: fight a war. That’s considered politically incorrect in America where feminist ideology has taken root in its military.

NormanF on November 24, 2010 at 7:38 am

Two words: Audie Murphy

Anthony on November 24, 2010 at 8:35 am

    I believe Audie, although small, was a male. And he used to get in bar fights and win. Her muscle mass would not compare to Audie.

    Occam's Tool on March 14, 2011 at 3:44 pm

Lets call it what it is–Army’s Top Shot. And if a woman can hit a target at 5-300 meters better than all the men in the competition, so be it. But Warrior? Nah man.

Sean R on November 24, 2010 at 11:11 am

Until you have worn the uniform and gone through the extensive boot camp and constant PT/war-fighting exercises that our military does, none of you are qualified to question this soldiers abilities.

Andrew Wahl on November 24, 2010 at 11:45 am

In a free country, anyone is qualified to question any body’s abilities. And, many of us ARE veterans.

This Best Warrior Competition b.s. is lacking one crucial element.
The enemy!
Everything is much harder on the battlefield.

” What a crock, all 5? 4? of her. I cannot believe that there wasn’t some Ranger/Special Forces/Airborne/Infantryman that was not heads and shoulders above her, physically and in the events. Sure, she is a great shot, but can she carry a 150 pound ruck? I doubt it.

Zoomboy on November 24, 2010 at 1:19 pm

Couple of things… If she’s such a good shot, why isn’t she a sniper? Her small size should be an asset in that capacity. Sorry, but I can’t imagine ANY female qualifying for the word “warrior.” Try as I might, I can’t visualize one with me in the jungle in Viet Nam. There is one woman who would be very close to being able to qualify – Cynthia Rothrock.

BTW, as a 60’s-70’s era military man, I still don’t like the idea of the berets.

Kent Daughtrey on November 24, 2010 at 2:37 pm

Since when is 5’4″ tiny? It’s the average height for white woman.

Olive on November 26, 2010 at 12:22 am

Maybe they should change the title of the award to “Warrior of the Year with breasts”.

kenny komodo on February 16, 2011 at 10:16 am

These days grunts from all the services and let me tell you I worked with all of them. Navy and Air Force have allot of battlefield deployed personnel on the ground doing very dangerous jobs. They are all WAY TOO busy being real warriors while deployed in OIF and OEF. When they are at home during their stateside rotation (which is not often) the last thing they want to do is a competition playing a warrior for something that they exceeded at every day in a combat zone.

SemperFiVet on February 16, 2011 at 1:41 pm

Can she hump Ruck?

Where is her Ranger Tab?

I think ya’ll can see where I’m going with this…
