Women Need Combat Roles to Advance Up the Ranks

Donna McAleer and Erin Solaro in the December 12th Washington Post article "Full participation for our 'sisters-in-arms'" present several reasons why women should now be allowed to serve in combat roles.

My favorite part of the article is this sentence:
An internal Marine assessment of its "female engagement teams" that has been discussed in recent weeks on military Web sites quoted an Afghan village elder as saying, "Your men come to fight, but we know the women are here to help."
Donna McAleer is a West Point graduate and former Army officer who is the author of the forthcoming book "Porcelain on Steel: Women of West Point's Long Gray Line" and Erin Solaro is the author of "Women in the Line of Fire: What You Should Know About Women in the Military," which is based on her embedded tours with troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Read the entire article now on why women should be allowed to have combat roles.
