It's very encouraging that, finally, there's some recognition that women have as much a part in the U.S. military as men. As some have mentioned here, women have been in front-line duties for ages, it's just never been officially recognized. And as many have pointed out, it's difficult to rise in the ranks for some women because they don't have combat-role experience under their belts.
One part of me says that it has taken a long time to get to this point, with one entire political party in congress (who are stuck in the 13th century, which is why they keep losing elections) opposed to equal treatment of women. But the other part of me is just glad that fairness has finally arrived to the largest employment sector of the U.S. government.
