"I had no idea that a combat zone would be such a sexually charged environment."

This, from a West Pointer?
Yes, to become a leader of character and serve my country well, it is imperative that I not have sex in my college bedroom. . . . I had no idea that a combat zone would be such a sexually charged environment. Blame it on amped-up testosterone pouring out of aggressive, athletic men. Or blame it on combat stripping even the strongest of men and women down to their core, raw emotions. Combine that with forming special bonds with comrades who promise to do whatever it takes to ensure your safe return home, including sacrificing their life for yours. What do you think happens?

Unwittingly, this woman makes the case for keeping women out of combat, even out of the armed forces. I'd like her to shut up. She appears to have learned nothing of morale, unit cohesion, self-sacrifice for the success of the mission. But considering she has a book and a comedy career to promote, she does know all about irreverence being a sure path to notoriety.
