New Rules for Women in Combat

09 Feb

Interesting…

Not sure how I feel about it yet, but interesting. On staff with a previous employer, I did a lot of work about and on behalf of female soldiers and veterans, waaaay before anybody was talking about it.

I raise my eyebrows now at all the attention that they receive and they have earned it. The Pentagon changing rules is a big deal, especially in light of all the women who have been killed and injured in enemy combat over the last decade in Iraq and Afghanistan. But I am still undecided about the limitations that are set. It’s too dangerous…it is dangerous to be a medic, translator or part of a convoy!

I wonder how women feel about it. If there are any female vets and/or soldiers out there, how about it?…
