The Ban on Women in Combat

by Kathryn Jean Lopez

(AP) – Pentagon chief Leon Panetta removes U.S. military ban on women in combat, opening thousands of front line positions.

I thought it was a joke. Dan actually e-mailed it to me and I thought: Very funny. 

But there’s your early warning: Prep because we are really going to do what we want to do this term. 

I write this in all gratitude for women who have served. Feminist pressure should never be making military policy. It’s been creeping in for years now. And that’s a disservice.
