Abstract

The article reports that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is working hard to meet the needs of the female veterans. Topics discussed include deployment of Samantha Carrera, a sergeant in the Maryland Army National Guard, in Afghanistan, half of all women veterans' past service in the First Gulf War starting in August 1990, and a lack of designated doctors and other medical professionals who are deputed to a veteran and provide comprehensive and gender-specific care.
