They carried the common secret of cowardice barely restrained, the instinct to run or freeze or hide, and in many respects this was the heaviest burden of all, for it could never be put down, it required perfect balance and perfect posture.

Two soldiers sue to lift combat ban "solely on the basis on sex"

Two female soldiers filed suit on Wednesday to scrap the U.S. military’s restrictions on women in combat, claiming the policy violated their constitutional rights.

"This limitation on plaintiffs’ careers restricts their current and future earnings, their potential for promotion and advancement, and their future retirement benefits," the women said in the suit filed in U.S. District Court.

peanutbutterandbadbitches said: Just curious if you had any photos archived of the 41 infantry fighting in the pacific during WWII. Apparently the 41st Infantry Division was; the first American Division to go overseas after the attack on Pearl Harbor, served overseas longer (45 months) than any other division, fought in more campaigns than any other division, killed and captured more Japanese than any other division, and was known as the "Bloody Butchers". My Grandfather served in it from 39-47 and I've seen very few photos.

I may have some in a few of my older WWII books, they feature a lot of rarely printed photos and information so I’ll check them out and report back if I find anything :)

Martha Gellhorn, total babe. She dated Hemingway until she decided that she didn’t want to be “a footnote in someone else’s life.” So she became an amazing journalist and war correspondent -  considered by The London Daily Telegraph, among others, to be one of the greatest war correspondents of the 20th century. She reported on virtually every major world conflict that took place during her 60-year career. She was also BFFs with Eleanor Roosevelt! Fabulous woman, total history crush.
