Another Exciting First

General Ann Dunwoody became the Army's first woman four-star General. As women can not yet serve in ground combat roles, Gen. Dunwoody was promoted through her service as a logistics officer. Here's hoping that this first, along with other changes in military culture, lead to increased exposure for female servicepeople, and a general review of how women are treated in our armed forces -- with an eye towards redressing and preventing recurrence of the kinds of abuses that have been perpetuated against women in uniform.
