WUSF listeners have been hearing some of the untold and under-reported stories of the Afghanistan War from Senior Master Sergeant Rex Temple.
This week, the Tampa airman looks at the role of women at the combat outposts. Gunners, drivers, convoy leaders, women are performing important military tasks in the Afghanistan War.
WUSF is following Temple during his year-long deployment to Afghanistan. You can see photos his recent mission led by a newly promoted, female master sergeant on Temple's blog: Afghanistan: My Last Tour.
