'How long did you serve, Tucker?' Another woman who lost her legs in Iraq backs Tammy Duckworth

In November 2004, while on a combat mission in Iraq, Tammy Duckworth lost both her legs when a rocket-propelled grenade hit the UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter she was co-piloting.

Duckworth, a captain in the Illinois Army National Guard at the time and now a U.S. senator from Illinois, was the first American female double amputee of the Iraq War. But not the last.

A year later, on Thanksgiving Day 2005, while patrolling the southern Baghdad area known as the “Triangle of Death,” Army Spc. Marissa Strock lost both her legs when her Humvee team was hit by a command-detonated IED.

When she came out of the coma, Strock consented to have both legs amputated below the knee. Like Duckworth, she was awarded a Purple Heart.

Despite their heroic military careers, Duckworth, Strock and many more American women like them continue to endure indignities on the home front.

Strock and several other female combat veterans interviewed for this story say they took Carlson’s comments about Duckworth personally.
