With that being said, how do you feel about women serving with our men in combat? It's not that I don't think that they cannot do the job, because I believe women can. (I am not a complete disappointment to the feminist movement). I think most soldiers who are in Special Forces, Seals, Recon or Delta might disagree with this. They are the ones who SHOULD know too! However, I am not the biggest supporter of the idea of women and men sharing close quarters a year at a time during deployments. Think about the bonds that are formed with brotherhood of the guys serving deployments together. They are forever intertwined with what went on during that deployment. Families cannot possibly understand everything and they share it with their battle buddies. Most of the times during these deployments, there is little contact with our husbands. We cannot talk on the phone every night, skype or even gmail chat! We trust him and believe he is serving his country the best he can! Add some females into their FOB or COP or even a tent, and the dynamic for men and women are changed. Some men and women might try to impress the other sex. This would take away from their mission at hand. I am NOT doubting my husband's faithfulness, but it doesn't seem like the best situation to go through on top of the whole RISKING YOUR LIFE and being the loving wife back on post. Maybe I am jumping to conclusions, but I am a little concerned. . .
Am I alone in this? Am I a bad women for feeling this way?
