History

Remember what you were doing today, because some day your daughter may ask you.

A little over an hour ago at an official press conference, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced that the U.S. Military's official ban on women serving in front-line combat roles has been lifted. The full rollout will be a three-year integration process, set to climax with the first (official) female combat troops appearing in 2016... which should make for some interesting juxtaposition, as it's still widely-expected that that same year will feature at least one major female contender for the Presidency.

Predictably, someone isn't happy.
