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">
