Females See Action

A Male Chauvinist view of Females in Combat ZoneI am the first to say that I'm a male chauvinist but not a "Male Chauvinistic Pig." I have always been willing to open doors for ladies and hold them in high regard. That trend still holds true today.
Three years ago I got a shock; a female joined my chapter of the Military Order of Purple Heart here in Colorado Springs. I was surprised and flabbergasted that females were being injured from combat [The number now is close to 800 Purple Hearts]. I didn't read about it in the newspaper nor did I see anything on TV, except for the Jessica Lynch story.
That opened the first door of a new experience; "GIRLS" were being shot at and even killed. The name of this page is Females troops. I am writing this to expand your and my knowledge about the role being presented to females today in a combat environment as Iraq or Afghanistan.
I was caught off guard when I found out that one of the first military personnel Killed in Action was a Special Operations female helicopter pilot. I don't know about you but this type of information was not something I read about.
I first started a web page dealing with the deaths that were taking place in both combat zones of Southwest Asia. I read a story about the females that were dying overseas and they had an average age of 22. It hit me very hard and I know that many want to be completely equal to the men in the field. An example would be the combat medics. Every time their unit went into the field they were at their side willing to face anything that came her way. When asked, the male team members WANTED their docs with them.
How do I feel today? I am impressed in the service being preformed by the female soldier, operating in the face of danger, no matter what their MOS is or where they are serving and I still and will hold the door open for a lady.
