June 18, 1991

Respondents to an informal telephone survey are almost evenly split on the issue of whether women should be restricted from combat duty. There is a similar feeling about whether women should be allowed to fight in the infantry or fly military aircraft in combat.

Of 329 callers to SUNDIAL, The Evening Sun's telephone poll, 171 (51 percent) think that women should be restricted from combat duty, and 158 (48 percent) think that women should not be restricted from combat duty.

Of 328 callers, 162 (49 percent) think that women should be permitted to fight in the infantry, and 166 (50 percent) think that women should not be permitted to fight in the infantry.

Of 327 callers, 175 (53 percent) think that women should be allowed to fly aircraft in combat, and 152 (46 percent) think that women should not be allowed to fly aircraft in combat.
