A long article in the Washington Post Magazine today about women in combat, and what it all means. Very 1990’s.
Profiled is Marine Captain Katie Horner, AH-1 Super Cobra pilot and veteran of two pumps to Iraq. Asked about whether she felt any remorse at gunning down insurgents who had fired on Marine patrol on the ground, Capt Horner replies:
“My feeling is, they started it. They could have chosen to have gone about their day. But instead they shot at Marines.”
