Beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, July 27, Perspectives will begin a new feature focusing on the many women serving in the US military. Each week weâ€™ll highlight a woman, from different branches of our Armed Services, who is proudly serving our country in these difficult times.
Since the terrorist attacks of 9-11, women have answered the call and proved time and again that, as our first featured Woman Warrior, LT COL Teri DelBalso, says, â€œWomen have shown they can go above and beyond what is expected of them, shouldering many of the same burdens as their male counterparts. Weâ€™ve earned the respect weâ€™re now being given by rising to every opportunity and proving we can do the jobâ€.
I hope you will enjoy these weekly â€œprofiles in courageâ€, and will share them with your friends and family. One of the best ways to thank those who help to keep us safe, is to let them know we appreciate their sacrifice.
If you know of a woman warrior who you think should be featured in a Woman Warrior Wednesday story, please post a comment or email me directly through the blog.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for reading.
