New Respect for Women Vets

Veteran’s Day was yesterday—with the federal holiday today—and in case you still think of it as an occasion oriented toward men, think again. With the election of Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) to the House last week, a double-amputee Iraq War veteran, female vets are gaining new prominence. And they should be.
