Ruth Handel’s comments on “Allowing Women on the Front Lines” were published in the New York Times’ Opinion Pages on Friday , January 25, 2013. Handel’s personal experience of her mother’s service in the Navy during WWI moved her to praise the recent Defense Department move to open combat roles to female soldiers. Handel’s book of poems – Tugboat Warrior (Dos Madres 2013) explores her mother’s experiences and the effects on her family. You may read Ruth’s letter below.
