I've been on military time since my husband returned which consists of a hurry up and wait rhythm that makes mince meat of the best made plans. And as such, I come back to an issue that is extremely irritating to me; the treatment of our (US) veterans, especially the women who once served.
While the men aren't necessarily treated as well as they should be, something I've seen very evidently in the military medical facilities, the women are all but non existent!
We hear stories of men who have served but where are the women stories? How many women have joined the military with the desire to do something for their country? How many have died serving in Iraq and Afghanistan?
The more I think of this the more I ask myself how many other battles have been fought around the world with women doing their part?
Aren't female soldiers' stories full of the same valor, courage and honor as men? How many stories have disappeared as women have pasted into spirit?
