Women have a Distinctive Role in the Military

The Pew Research Center published their findings which state that "...military women are not different from military men: they are just as likely to be officers; they joined the armed services for similar reasons; and post-9/11 veterans of both sexes have experienced a similar mix of struggles and rewards upon returning to civilian life".

The report also shows that there are changes in the growing presence, ranks, demographics, combat, re-entry and the opinions of wars in the female veteran population.

To read their fingings, you can access them by clicking on the title of this blog.
