aruvqan, what year did this happen? I've been told that in the Vietnam War era, the height requirement for men was that they couldn't be less than 5 foot or more than 6 foot 6. I've been told that now the requirement for both men and women is that they can't be less than 4 foot 10 or more than 6 foot 8. Does anyone have the entire history of the height requirements of the American military for both sexes over all the time that the military has had any height requirements (and perhaps a citation for it)? Yeah, I'm sure that you can come up with anecdotes about particular rejections at particular times, but I'd like to know the entire history.
