Women in combat?

Military women have been fighting and dying for a decade during both our wars.

Air Force Staff Sgt. Stacy Pearsall was attached to an Army ground unit that was clearing roadside bombs. They had just found their 26th device of the day when one of their armored personnel carriers exploded. And she started shooting.

Quote of the Day -- “Yes, women can do it, and I already have. I can't speak for the men, but I feel that when the bullets were flying, they didn't care that I was a woman, as long as I was pulling the trigger." – Staff Sgt. Pearsall, who served two tours of duty in Iraq.
