Something to think about…

While relatively old (or new depending on your perspective), as a program, only now is Team Lioness coming into public awareness. Keeping the existence of the unit relatively quiet was probably a smart thing considering the strong negative reaction some people have towards women in combat as it allowed the military to operate unhindered from imposed morals and regulations by politicians, religious figures, and other assorted special interests.

Perhaps renewed attention on the issue of women in contact will finally allow for a genuine debate and stop people from burying their heads in the sand or clinging to the falsehood of women being safe in the rear echelon.

Just something to think about.
