This sounds about right to me...

STATEMENT ON WOMEN IN MILITARY ADOPTED BY NAPARC

A new statement regarding women in the military was approved at the
annual meeting of the North American Presbyterian and Reformed Council
(NAPARC). The statement, which could be ratified by each of NAPARC's
member churches in the next year, states that women are not "to be
conscripted or employed in military combat roles but rather they are to
be defended by men and kept from harm's way that they might fulfill
their Biblical callings and duties under God." Three member churches of
the NAPARC have adopted statements adding that women already in the
military should consult God's word regarding their current involvement
and that it is the duty of men to protect women even though women are
allowed the right to protect themselves, even when that might involve
physical violence.
