As a female, who served in our U.S. military some years ago, and whose Great-aunt was awarded a Silver Star for Bravery during WWll on Anzio Beachheadwhile under fire, when several of her fellow nurses were killed, I can understand how male soldiers feel about women in the military. They are very protective of them; sometimes to the point of sacrificing themselves in their place if they see the female soldier is in danger. God made men with that 'feeling' and it is wonderful!! But, it might get some of the male soldiers killed trying to assist female soldiers whom they see may be in danger. I understand, and also believe, as a female, that women should not be on the front lines, unless they are medics!!!
