Did you ever think it would really happen?

You know, I did. I really did.

I had always believed that eventually the US Congress would open up all combat-related assignments to females.

But I didn’t really think it would happen this soon…

And it was never within the realm of my imagination that it and the end of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell could have happened in the matter of one presidency.

Damn… I sure am going to miss President Obama.
 


 

G.I. JANE was released in 1997.

Our short film LEAVE is set in 1995, when Congress first opened up some combat-related assignments to females, including assignments to warships, and it is about one warship’s all-male crew’s reaction to the arrival of its first female sailors.

I’m sure you can just imagine exactly what their reaction will be…

Hopefully the brave service women now accepting the first combat and special warfare assignments will receive a much better reaction and reception…

      1. Many women my daughter’s age are now scared that the draft will come back and they’ll be forced into military combat. Even though a lot of them were interested in the military, they were not interested in combat.
