    My father until his death was a democrat and union president. Yet many aspects he was in favor of were conservative. He was a union man, until his death and for him that meant democrat. If he were alive today, he might be tempted to change his tune. He was a coal miner.

    Trying to come up with a great sentence to say “you have done well and I applaud you” and this is that sentence.

    Thank you for the article about women in combat roles. I have long been opposed to this.

    Ms. Eden,

    Would you be interested in contributing a piece for our publication? I work for Military Review, the U.S. Army’s professional journal. Thank you for your time and consideration in advance…Maj. Efrem Gibson

    I’m very interested in your articles pertaining to women fighting in combat! They’re very compelling. In fact, your ‘The Problems of Women in Combat – From a Female Combat Vet’ has persuaded me to use the same topic for my English argumentative paper. I would like to personally speak to you regarding that!

    Your father teaches Constitution and Politics at Hillsdale. You must be very proud. Awesome!

  • Barbara Graham Graham

    And they must be very proud of you too!

    Hi Jude,
    This is my first visit to your blog, and I am reminded of a quote which I won’t bother to attribute: “In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”

    God Bless and protect you from your detractors, of which, I am sure, there are many. I just read your article “Women in Combat – The Question of Standards” and I thought it was brilliant.

    Thank you for fighting the fight, both as a US Marine, and as a commentator on this important issue. This sailor salutes you and extends a heartfelt non-USMC “Semper Fi” with respect, Ma’am.

    Because you exemplify it.
