Women are the lord's most most beautiful creation. Women are generally known for their delicacy, their docile and subduded nature. And if a woman can give birth to a child, she can do anything. There is no hardship strong enough to curtail a determined woman's mission.
Here are a few women from the US military who define the word brave. They show what unnatural courage, strength and a sense of honor means. These are the brave-hearts of US military. They deserve all our respect and love.
