We came up with a theory last night that this was simply an excuse for backdoor eugenics. Sure enough, this in morning's news:

] Just over ten percent of women in the military said in 2008 they'd had an unintended pregnancy in the last year - a figure significantly higher than rates in the general public, according to a new study.
The findings come amid news that the Pentagon will lift the ban on women in front-line combat jobs starting in 2016.
The way the eugenics part would work:
Obviously women who are going to be on the front line can't be pregnant, or run any risk of falling pregnant. So the military will mandate no fail birth control methods, like Depo, IUDs or sterilization. Depo is noted for causing long term fertility issues:

So, many, many woman will return from military service sterile. "They" will say it is to prevent things like:

] A team of doctors has flown to Afghanistan after a British servicewoman gave birth to a boy having not realised she was pregnant.
But actually, its just to cut the population. They can make all
women in the military use no fail birth control at all
times because they might be called to the front at any time. So no kids for you if you go in service, ladies.
How are they going to keep the guys from making babies? I anxiously await that one.
Does anyone have a link like this that is not anecdotal? Personal experience? Are they already forcing Depo?Don't kid yourselves about the military and birth control. When my married daughter was deployed to Iraq with her National Guard unit, all of the women were required to have Depro shots for birth control because of the prevalence of rape among our own troops
