    Yep, throws like a girl!! I guess the NCOs standing by her didn't bother to teach proper throwing techniques in a PMI or any type of class!!?? Idiots kill other idiots!!

    Another reason not to put women in combat units. They are going to get someone killed.

    With women coming into combat roles we will see a lot more of these videos coming.

    People this video looks fake. The grenade went over the sandbag barrier, but the explosion occurs inside the barrier. I simply don't believe this was a real incident. I can't tell for sure if they are US soldiers or Afghan soldiers. If US, then they wouldn't be conducting grenade training without wearing their battle rattle equipment. That's SOP.

    First off according to this post this was in China. Our DI'S train soldiers how to toss grenades that are not real, they are of the same weight so they get the feel of a real grenade and as you also can see she tried to throw it not toss it in the correct fashion taught by our DI'S. So this has nothing to do with US women in combat, As one person says look up the two women who have received Silver Stars. Our soldiers are trained properly and are fully capable of conducting combat missions.

    I think your supposed to throw the grenade and not the pin. Looks like a 3 Stooges routine.

    I was in the light/parachute infantry for 26.5 years, I was also a basic training Drill Sergeant and I have to say that we trained the females how to properly throw a grenade well before they actually threw a live grenade. In answer to one of the comments made about females receiving the Silver Star. A female received the Silver Star as a result of being one of the many Soldiers that repelled an ambush on their convoy about midway during the war in Iraq. The male Soldier within arms length of her, repelling the same ambush in the same manner as she received no award, but she did. The video I thought was actually funny, since no one was hurt. Even during the invasion of Panama while under fire and one of my men laid in the fetal position wounded, we were all laughing and joking about the rounds flying past us through the high cuna grass.

    That's why they work out better in the kitchen, and bedroom... Oh there are several who can toss a MEAN baseball, and therefore toss the hell out of the hand gerandes....keep them by all means and dump those who act as this video depicted!!!!! What a joke!!!!

    When I was with the Seabees we used training grenades to practice with. The were the same size and weight as the real thing but only made a loud bang when they went off. I understand the need to train with the real thing but the instructors should have had her and everyone else practice throwing a training grenade first. Training rounds are a lot less expensive than a death or pernanent injury benefit.

    ArnoldJRimmer - I just looked up those two female soldiers you're referring to, and both got medals for doing what EVERY man in combat is expected to do. This is a good example of different standards for men and woman in the military.

    I seem to remember back in the old days of 1965 the first thing they taught you to do was throw the grenade like a baseball, with a big wind up, and until you could satisfy the PMI you could throw a rock a safe distance you weren't allowed within 10 feet of a live grenade. When the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is no longer our friend!

    Who is the idiot that gave her a live grenade before evaluating her with practice grenades? The mistake is this isn't a good training example!!! She never received the proper training or she would know more the proper hold and delivery of a grenade.

    I thought they would use fake grenades first. Well that's why I would not be a instructor for something like that: firearms, driving anything where a student might accidentally kill me.

    Looked like a decent effort to provide a demonstration for looking out for your partner. The guy does a great job of keeping enough sense to grab her and face plant her into the bunker. Bet that will leave an impression on her for awhile. I wager that most would instinctively think of self preservation in that situation.

    That shows that making women in the military to join combat units is a huge mistake....come on people live the combat for man only or our military will fail!!

    I have never personally seen a female soldier hrow a Hand Grenade the minimum safe distance. I have seen a few hundred throw them about 3' high and about 2' down range. Thats why there are plywood ramps in front of throwing positions at most US grenade ranges.

    Being a female medic in the FLANG for 8 yrs, I can honestly and objectively say that the vast majority of females in the military, that I came in contact with should have NEVER been there. And by no means should ever serve in any combat situation. I am also of the firm belief that females should never serve alongside males, isolated from the majority. It's just plain common sense. Which, unfortunately seems to be in crucially short supply under this administration...

    No. She couldn't throw it far enough.BullFeathers.

    Hey I wonder if she can do a single pull-up. Or is she one of the girls saying the training is too tough an needs to be lighten in boot so she can feel empowered.

    The only thing I want to see is you throw 40 pounds of protective gear and 60, 80, or 100 pounds of provisions on them and tell them to climb a mountain with a 45 degree grade or worse. WHY? Because that is what your infantry does every day!

  32. 16785713
    16785713 Feb 21, 2015

    You can read the regs 140 pounds is considered a move up pack in rough terrain where trucks can't go and helicopters dare not tread. Think bullets flying, 140 pounds!
