This blog exists in order to circulate information about issues that affect female (and male) soldiers, as well as to provide a forum in which Americans citizens and citizens of the world can share ideas and opinions. I am confident that I have posted information and statistics from reliable sources like the U.S. Department of Defense website and well-respected news agencies. Please let me know if you find sources, links and/or published material that contradict or correct the statistics found on this blog. Feel free to post links and information as comments, and I will be sure to check them out. I appreciate your feed-back and your help. After all, this blog is supposed to open the conversation, to get people talking about the issues, and to provide accurate information. The status of fact is tenuous these days (perhaps always), but I would feel terrible if this blog, something that I care deeply about, were furthering lies. Please help me make this a good, helpful and truthful internet space.
