My dear friend, Kristin-former naval officer now army spouse!
Okay people, female soldiers are no more whores, sluts, family breaker uppers, etc than ANY MALE soldier.. Its called paranoia ladies...I can promise you that the female soldiers in your husbands unit are not AFTER HIM... It is HORRIBLE, the things I have read lately about female soldiers and I am insulted for them.. Maybe because Sal is an MP and has ALWAYS worked around females that I am totally fine with it Oh, and another small thing-I trust him.. Maybe its more a trust issue than a paranoid one.. WHo knows.. What I do know is that through the 22 years of military family member-ness, I have met WONDERFUL soldiers-male and female.. Worthy of wearing the uniform and living by the military code and values..I hope those of you who have called these wonder women, these horrible things, realize that SOME of you will have or do have daughters and POSSIBLY some of them will join the military... Is that what you want people to think of females in the military?? Is that what you want people to think of YOUR daughter, if she joins the military?? Umm no.. You dont, but you perpetuate the stereotype by continually making insane comments... Here are a couple of wonderful females that I know and love that are soldiers.. Dar, Dannielle, Sarah,Shepell, even a current army spouse, Kristin, was a Naval officer.. All of them have either served or are serving.. None of them sluts, whores or anything even close to that.. All of them have served with my husband(Except Kristin) and if you ask Sal, he would go to war with ALL of them and trusts them.. There are MANY more we know who I can say the same thing about.. So, stop and think about what you say. I have also seen SOME of your comments and complaints about your soldiers not passing pt tests, being chaptered, getting article 15's, so they are NO fabulous role model in the Army.. So, women join the military for the same reasons the men do.. Serve their country, be part of something wonderful, college, experience, etc.. So THINK before you speak..
