It's hard to be a soldier: that's part of the point of military service. But being a lady soldier in the modern U.S. military is way, way more difficult than it ought to be. Today on Cracked Gets Personal, Robert Evans and Brandon Johnson talk to a soldier who was raped in boot camp. We hear from a lady Marine sergeant about how she survives in the world's biggest boy club, and we talk to an Army nurse who was stationed in Iraq about how kindness and gentleness can help win wars. You'll also learn about the weird things that make it more difficult for women to serve, like the fact that the world's most powerful military lacks a technology that Burning Man's had for a decade.
