A SALUTE TO HERO ARMY SPC. MONICA LIN BROWN….

A 19-year-old medic from Texas is the first woman in Afghanistan and only the second woman since World War II to receive the Silver Star, the nation’s third-highest medal for valor. Army Spc. Monica Lin Brown, after an explosion, which wounded five soldiers in her unit, ran through insurgent gunfire and used her body to shield wounded comrades as mortars fell less than 100 yards away, the military said. Medical aid rendered under fire saved all five of her comrades.

Nice to see that the U.S. Military also recognize our female soldiers as well. You never know where or when a hero just might have a light shown on them.
