A salute to women American heroes...

Dawn Halfaker, an Army captain who lost her right arm and part of her shoulder in Iraq, is part of a unique cohort from the Iraq war: the nation's first group of female combat amputees.

You won't read about Dawn in your local newspaper. There is an unofficial ban on publishing anything that might reflect on our great enterprise in Iraq. Even thought I am a rabid anti-war activist I believe we should put people like Dawn on a very tall pedestal and honor them as great American heroes.
