Mexican military selective in recruiting!

Adapted from La Reforma, Monday. October 1, 2012.

In any given recent year:

Roughly 700,000 young Mexicans express an interest in joining the military.

Out of that, 21,000 actively apply.

Preliminary rigorous physical and psychological testing alone washes out all but 5,000.

Then things really get rough!

Because these remaining 5,000 are given a cultural examination.


Less than 1,500 make the grade!

Of which 9.88% are women ...

Just think if the U.S. Military had those kinds of standards!! 


So that's just dreaming! :)
