US Army Ditches Grenade Throwing Requirement Because Too Many Recruits Can’t Throw Far Enough

The blast radius of a grenade, on average, is 15 meters, with a 25-meter throw being considered a necessary distance.
Some have questioned whether the removal of the grenade requirement was an accommodation for female recruits, though the Army has denied those allegations, stating that it is an “incorrect premise” as Army BCT has had the hand grenade requirement for both genders “for several years,” adding in a statement, “This new approach allows the Army to recover valuable time and resources to focus on training on other critical skills.”
Translated into English, Female Recruits can’t throw is my humble opinion. Sadly this is going to come back and bite us in the ass down the road! Grumpy
