    I am pleased to see that the US military has entered the 21st century with this decision. I do hope that if there ever comes a time to bring back the draft that women will have to sign up also.

    I would just like to comment on this story because I am a female in the Army. I am a 'Combat Medic' and I have deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. My deployment to Afghanistan, I was with the Military Police. There were several females who including myself went on EVERY mission (outside of the wire). I have treated Soldiers who have been injured in the fight and I was able to do my job with no problems (mental or physical). I was also on a Female Engagement Team which contributed much to the mission. So this thing about females not being allowed to be on the front lines until now, is not true at all and for those saying we are not capable, I have outdone some of the males, so maybe you shouldn't be so judgemental from the outside looking in. I get it, not all females could do it, but neither can all the males.
