The story of amazing women in the military is revealing the tenacity and leadership of the courageous women fighting today. The women’s unit has proven to be equitable and benchmarking the capacity of women in battle. The book that is revealing this other side of battle is being featured “Inside the military program that put women in combat” to share their stories.

“In her new book, “Ashley’s War: The Untold Story of a Team of Women Soldiers on the Special Ops Battlefield,” Gayle Tzemach Lemmon chronicles the accomplishments of this groundbreaking team and the history of shadow women warriors in the US military.”

“During the final contest, White marched in the middle of her team, all carrying 30 pounds on their backs. They passed their larger and better-funded rival, Ohio State.

“Oh, f- -k,” a competing cadet yelled. “Holy s- -t, they got a ­female. And they are f- -king passing us. Pick it up!”

“I’m trying, dude. I can’t go any faster,” another cadet said. “Man, I’m hurting all over.”

“What the f- -k? Are you kidding me?” the first said. “That girl’s not complaining! Step it up now!”

“From the beginning, Ashley White set herself apart. When she enrolled in the ROTC program at Kent State University in 2011, she was 18 years old and determined to train with the Ranger Challenge team — which, until that point, had been all male. “That girl” would go on to become part of the first all-female military team to serve with special ops in Afghanistan — all during a time when women were officially banned from ground combat.

They called her “Little White” — she barely reached 5-foot-3. The team began training by hiking with 20 pounds of gear in their rucksacks, then 30. Her fellow cadets — including her team leader and boyfriend, Jason Stumpf — were shocked she was able to keep pace, never once falling out of formation.”

The ability to peer into the lives of these women on combat may change the way women are treated and viewed beyond the field.
