On Monday, the Department of Defense announced that it was making an effort to increase the number of women’s coats in its supply chain.
It will begin sending men’s jackets to its women-only suppliers beginning next month.
The department said that the initiative would “enhance the survivability of our men and increase the survivabilities of women.”
But there are some problems with this plan.
For starters, it’s not a plan that’s going to help all women.
As the Washington Post’s Amanda Hess has written, the government’s focus on women’s clothing may have been a mistake.
As Hess has pointed out, the Pentagon’s current plan doesn’t actually require women to wear the coat.
Instead, the new plan aims to ensure that women can buy their own jackets.
And even though the plan seems to make sense in the long run, it does seem to run into problems with the real world.
For example, it could also create a problem for women who may want to wear jackets made by men who have been trained to use them for military purposes.
The Department of the Navy is planning to send women’s combat boots to its female suppliers starting next month, but that doesn’t mean that all female sailors will be wearing those boots.
The Defense Department said in a statement that it “does not plan to purchase any of these boots from outside suppliers” because the boots will be manufactured “in the United States.”
And even if it did, the boots would be only made in the U.S. because the department wants to keep the cost down.
So while the new plans are good, they don’t solve the problem.
Instead of ensuring that women have the best possible quality, the Navy and the Department should be trying to find other ways to get the best quality women’s military boots.
It may seem like a small step, but this new program is a step in the right direction.
