IDF: Women lead Hummer Teams

Female Combat Hummer Operatives

The female soldiers who serve in the Hummer Operators' Unit - there are no male Hummer operators - spend their days in the field, training other soldiers how to use military Hummer vehicles in real-life combat scenarios.

I found this very interesting, but I wonder why they made this unit entirely female. If there is an advantage explained I did not find it. Of course, no one ever has to explain why a unit is all male, so maybe that is why they do not mention it.

No clue...brings to mind the Beatle's song "Baby You Can Drive My Car."
