Abstract:

When one hires a person one gets the entire person. In addressing the hiring of women in todays expanded and changing job market, employers and policy makers have neglected to consider the total person. What they have focused on is whether the woman can do the job--the 9-5 wrench turning What they havent focused on is the job holder as part of an organization that can make other legitimate demands on the employee. The demands as they relate to the military mission require that military members always be ready to meet the mission--along with the weapons systems and equipment. Readiness in the case of military members requires that each person be mentally and physically fit be disciplined obedient and responsive to authority to have attained technical expertise and lastly be available at all times to command for performance of the mission.
