My posts about politics are few and far between these days.
But with the announcement by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta that women will be allowed to serve in combat roles, I cannot let this pass by without comment.
I could easily rant and rave about this decision. Instead, I found an excellent response in an article written by Ryan Smith on the Wall Street Journal Opinion section. Take the time to read it and pass it along so that the citizens of this nation can see the conditions we would be putting our daughters, sisters, wives, mothers, aunts and friends in.
Mr. Panetta, is there a reason why you announced the decision as you are leaving you post as Defense Secretary?
