Where are the manly men going to go to college and become real fighting machines?<br><br><br><br>[b][i]Last All-Male Military College to Admit Women<br><br>Sunday, October 23, 2005<br><br>WAYNE, Pa. — Valley Forge Military College, the last all-male military college in the country, will accept women beginning next fall.<br><br>The decision will allow women into ROTC, military service academy prepatory programs, the two-year transfer college and the Army Early Commissioning Program, where cadets earn Army commissions in two years.<br><br>School officials estimated enrollment for women could reach 20 percent within five years. Valley Forge Military Academy, a boarding school for boys in grades seven to 12, will remain a single-sex school.<br><br>"The research says there is still a good benefit for single-sex education at the high school level, but we believe the time has come for a coed program at the college level," spokesman Rod Hill said.<br><br>Several area private schools have gone coed in recent years, including Chestnut Hill College, Immaculata University and Harcum College.<br><br>Military colleges such as The Citadel and Virginia Military Institute went coed soon after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1996 that they could not bar women and still receive public funds.<br><br>

Even in the case of private military schools, more students = more tuition money. And it wouldn't be surprising if these schools are facing their own "recruitment" problems.<br><br>Now, I'm not a manly man, but I can't imagine a kid sayin', "Gee, Mom and Pop. I want to go to a school where every living', breathin' minute of my day and night is regimented."<br><br>When we were in HS, the only guys that went to military school were the ones shipped off by their parents, 'cause they were "bad boys." One of them was our friend BillyW. The things he learned at NMMI ~ he went in a bad boy and came out nigh on criminal.<br><br>[color:blue]My, My Baby Blue . . .</font color=blue>
<br>yeppy<br><br>Now that's what I call "equal opportunity"!<br>the same "private school" you shipped your <br>little boy off to so he'd "become a man" by<br>getting raped by bullies & upper classmen,<br>now can also have Muffy "pulling a train"! <br><br>
