Combat effectiveness is based in large part on unit cohesion. The relationships among members of a unit can be irreparably harmed by forcing them to violate societal norms.

Relying heavily on quotes from former Navy SEAL and Montana state Sen. Ryan Zinke, Pattern worries that women don’t know that war is a real thing involving real people:
This is not a Hollywood movie. This has real consequences that are going to affect our sons and daughters whose lives are on the line… The hard truth of combat oftentimes is brutal. It involves face-to-face, hand-to-hand, close-quarter battle. And I think we forget that. We’ve become so sensitized that warfare is wrapped up in a two-hour movie featuring stars who always live. And that’s not how it really is.
