I get very, very scared inside when I enmesh my fears with what I believe a soldier has to feel fighting for their country. Do not interpret the following as anything other than what it says. There is no hidden meaning about women in the military. I cannot imagine being away from my country and especially my family…not knowing if I will make it home…especially if I were a female soldier. I think women are made out of a different cloth than men as far as emotional and nurturing aspects are concerned. I am so thankful there are men and women willing to do it all – go all the way – even knowing they might die defending all of us. I’m not proud to say I don’t have it in me…but it is the truth. I leave these thoughts with deep love and thankfulness…..and I’m very proud of my soldier!!
