    Personally I think the "citizen soldier" General George Marshall who was Chief of Staff during WW2 would roll over in his grave if he saw that his library is celebrating American women in combat. The issue seems to be left vs right. Lefties apparently think that it it's a concept of "fairness" to force female Service members to serve in combat. Why would any nation much less the only "super-power" left in the world think it's a good idea to allow (force?) it's female population serve in combat?

    Women served in combat roles in every war we've ever been involved with, lad.

    Read your nations history.

    Don't call me lad, son. Women were never sanctioned to serve as combat troops in "every other war".

    The Israelis learned the lesson, they no longer put women in front line combat units.

    Yeah, ask the Army how the whole women in combat thing is working for them...they're working overtime to sweep all the rapes under the rug.

    Put women in isolated, close quarters with men who are hyped up dealing with death every single day. Throw in a lack of surveillance or security...guess what you get? Madness.

    Women do not belong in combat. Not on the battlefields of the military, nor anywhere else. The sole exception being in support or absence of her Father/Husband/Boyfriend/Etc... during some type of assault, robbery, etc....

    I can't speak for Republicans but we Conservatives absolutely adore women. What we have no love for are those females who cannot or will not accept their proper role in life (feminists and the like). Nor do we have any place for males who won't accept their proper place either.

    A country that puts women in combat situations should be ashamed rather than "celebrating" at the grave of a WW2 Soldier.
