You can discuss MSA all you want. But the big difference now, compared with prior wars, is the number of women in hazardous-duty assignments. Consider the Vietnam War, where eight female sevicemembers suffered combat-related deaths. That's eight out of a total of nearly 60,000 deaths. Through 2009, 121 women died in the GWOT. That's out of just over a total of over 5,000 deaths. So the female deaths, as a percentage of the total, is shockingly higher than our prior wars. Why don't you talk about that?
