    I wonder what was going on in the minds of the men riding in those boats. They had to feel so scared.

    @Texas Beth They fought as though their lives depended on it. Which, of course, they did. Loss of mental fortitude likely meant death. I will never truly understand the mechanism of "warfare". Nor the need for it. Frank

    Untold number of women were involved in the war effort and their valuable efforts helped to make our victory possible!

    @Von Jones It all depends, IMO. On the type of Women. Hillary represents a deeply disturbing departure from what might be thought of as an "average American woman".
