Lots of hoopla has been raised lately regarding the Pentagon lifting the ban to allow women in combat and after chewing on it for several days, I’ve really come to one question that addresses this perfectly:
Should a person enlist to defend his/her country WITHOUT the willingness to die for it?
Men serving … women serving … what’s the difference? In the military you are a soldier first, and speaking as one who served for 20 years gratefully standing on the shoulders of those giants who went before me – your gender doesn’t matter. You get paid the EXACT same in the military, and thus should be able to do the same job.
