Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced last week that for the first time women would be allowed to serve in combat. The decision opens hundreds of thousands of jobs, and new avenues for promotion, to female soldiers. What can women expect on the front lines of battle, and what can their male counterparts expect from them? Two female soldiers join Editorial Page Editor Robert Price Tuesday on "Californian Radio" to discuss it.
Deborah Johnson, who served in Operation Desert Storm with the Wisconsin National Guard, and Tonna Mullens, who served in Iraq with the California National Guard, are Price's guests.
