What do these women think about women serving in combat? [View all]

Say, Colonel Tammy Duckworth?




Or these women on The Wall:

CAPT Eleanor Grace Alexander, USA
(Panel 31E Line 8)

2LT Pamela Dorothy Donovan, USA
(Panel 53W Line 43)

2LT Carol Ann Drazba, USA
(Panel 05E Line 46)

LTC Annie Ruth Graham, USA
(Panel 48W Line 12)

2LT Elizabeth Ann Jones, USA
(Panel 05E Line 47)

CAPT Mary Therese Klinker, USAF
(Panel 01W Line 122)

1LT Sharon Ann Lane, USA
(Panel 23W Line 112)

1LT Hedwig Diane Orlowski, USA
(Panel 31E Line 15)


Or Jessica Lynch and Lori Piestewa.




Or all the WWII female military members who were killed, and who were imprisoned for many years (and often died in) in POW camps, the thousands who received Purple Hearts and other BATTLEFIELD decorations. The female pilots who ferried unarmed planes through dangerous skies (because they weren't allowed to be armed). Women such as Cpt. Annie Fox.




Women have given their blood, their lives, their health for this country, receiving less pay, slower promotion tracks, fewer medical services, lesser decorations, and insults for their. Including the insults and tired cliches about women military on here.

Props to all who have served, are serving, and will serve. It's not for me, but hats off to those who are our female warriors.
