This is a great article about Female Veterans that are running for Congressional Seats in the United States. I love to see women standing up for themselves and speaking out to make a difference for the rights and beliefs they deem as right. Way to go.

Four months back, I wrote about four female veterans running for Congress. It turns out they’re not the only ones, by a long shot.

And boy are they needed: in the 112th Congress, women only hold 16% of the 435 House seats and 17 of the 100 seats in the Senate. Amazingly, there are only 92 veterans in the House of Representatives, and 26 in the Senate, only one of which is a woman. That there are 10 women veterans running is historic in itself, it would be awesome if all or most of them are elected in November.
