Woman Gains Silver Star -- And Removal From Combat - washingtonpost.com
It's amazing that women in the military can prove time and time again what an asset they are to the mission and to combat, yet this country still wants to treat them like delicate flowers. It hits me in the gut like a knife the thought process that goes into it all. Get this straight.....women CAN do combat. Regardless of what the rules state, women DO combat in Afghanistan and Iraq. How can the Armed Forces in this country continue to state that they are Equal Opportunity, when they are not. It's rediculous and it's hypocritical.
