U.S. Army Soldiers, both men and women, patrol the customs checkpoint at Torkham Gate, Afghanistan, April 24, 2013. Though women are still not yet fully integrated into combat units, women are not absent from the frontlines. Many fields in the Army, such as public affairs or linguistics, send women to the front where they embed with line units and share the risk. (Photo by U.S. Army National Guard Staff Sgt.
