It appears that President Obama, Leon Pinetta (Def.Sec) and Gen. Dempsey (JCS) are excited over instituting a Combat Infantry Roll for our Women in the military. I certainly hope these men did not make their their decision on “Band Wagon Appeal” only?

I would regret to hear of our women being captured and imprisoned specifically, by our present enemy, that being the Taliban and Jihadist “Crazies.” Any smart person would know how those extreme elements treat their own women. I wonder how American citizens (less the self serving politicians) would react to that afore-mentioned situation.

I might suggest that any decision to put our women in the “trenches” be made by the Congressional vote, not done by “Obama’s change Legacies.”
