Good read, especially the last paragraph.

I wonder how many 18 year old girls want to fight in a combat zone? How many Daddy's little girls will be drafted and sent into harms way? I just can't see the High School cheerleader and Football jock being in the same unit fighting a war????

Combat is a terrible thing to be involved in, and anyone who says they like it is not being truthful. To take a human life is the most stressful mentally and physically thinks you will ever live through. As a war veteran i can tell you the key word is "Live" and come home to the people who you love. USN HTCS {EOD} RETIRED. But I'd go tomorrow again as to have my little girl in war. For God and Country!

I agree, and nothing against women at all but they are made up different than men. They handle these stresses differently. ptsd is a serious condition. Can you imagine in 10 years after a lot of these women come back what they will have to deal with mentally. It will be just as sad as seeing them on the front lines giving their life. We shouldn't send our women and girls to fight for us. That is not showing strength.
