    It was wonderful to read about the special hunt for our female woudned warriors. I have a friend who returned from Iraq with sever PTSD and she ahs repeatedly said to me , “The VA , the various groups, they just don’t know how to deal with women’s issues.”
    Thank you for remembering our women warriors!
