Bush's War Viewed from the South

Jorge Mariscal: Bush's War Viewed from the South

Version en espanol: http://www.rebelion.org/noticia.php?id=25991">

On the issue of women in the military, I received the following message from a woman vet in rural Texas:

"I was in the USMC 4 yrs after high school '79 - '83 during peacetime.  I could relate to your article about Puerto Rican/Latino servicewomen's reasons for enlisting because I was an orphan, poor, and my options upon graduation were limited. Things are monumentally more dangerous now than when I served.  The one thing that has not changed is the harassment issue."

On the plight of women soldiers in Iraq, see: http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/013006J.shtml">
