Editor's Note

Last week, the staff of The Patriot Post took an "August recess" to regroup before the hectic election season. However, many readers did not receive our recess notice because The Patriot was erroneously placed on a junk mail list used by several major Internet Service Providers (ISPs). It was a technical issue, not a political one, and we believe it to be resolved. We're back in full swing today, and many thanks to the large chorus of readers who let us know that you missed us.

Profiles of Valor: U.S. Army Spc. Monica Brown

It's not often that a female serving in the Armed Forces is in a position to display combat valor, but such was the case for Spc. Monica Brown in Afghanistan in April 2007. Brown joined the Army at age 17, and at 18 was serving temporarily as a medic with the 4th Squadron, 73rd Cavalry Regiment in Afghanistan. Female medics are a crucial part of missions there because male medics are often prevented from treating women and girls. Brown was on a mission with her unit to track down a bomb-making cell near the Pakistani border when the last vehicle in the convoy struck a roadside bomb.
