I'm a vet and now an activist for female veterans issues and ending the war.

One of the largest problems that is under studied is how training in the military is gendered as far as it creates an "other" to be despised versus the strong male character. The other is usually women, gays or dark skinned nationalities.

When we startto put a spotlight on that builing of a psychology we will start to unravel the problem this article is about.

Peace.
