“She’s a hoss,” her drill sergeant, Joseph Sapp, said as he watched her. After a tour in Iraq and four in Afghanistan, he has served with his share of soldiers. “Forget male-female; she’s one of the best in the company. She’s one you’re happy to have.”

Women warriors. The controversy and objections wash away as you read this piece. These women are fierce and competent. 

They show us another version of womanhood, and it is glorious.
