Spc. Monica Lin Brown from Lake Jackson Texas
I'm not going to get into the whole women in combat thing. Enough has been said already on that subject. I can only tell you as a paramedic, that at age 19, I was doing good to put a band aid on someone who cracked their head open at a Frat party. The fact that she's with the 82nd AIRBORNE doesn't exactly take points away from her in my book either. Neither does the fact that she's from Texas. We DO know how to grow 'em here!
