Another example of the Army's eagerness to appease the feminists is the case of a small blond woman, 4'11" Staff Sergeant Erin Gibson, who was recently featured on ABC's Nightline. She is now on her 5th deployment. She has had four previous deployments to the Middle East, and her current assignment is in Afghanistan, one of the most dangerous places in the world. She is part of a medevac crew, based principally in a helicopter, treating wounded soldiers. The feminists are demanding a gender-neutral military, and they claim that the genders are interchangeable.
Sergeant Gibson is a single mom, who leaves behind her tearful 9-year-old son Elijah to be taken care of by his grandparents. I simply do not believe that our national security requires sending a single mom to five dangerous Middle East battle areas, thereby abandoning her child who has no other parent.
