This is awesome! I was in the first push into Iraq in 2003 and I am very glad to see that they are not letting soldiers forget what they are there to do. It's not fun, but you are in the military, you are not on vacation and you chose to be there. You signed up for it. You should not be able to get pregnant during combat and you should not be there looking for a boyfriend. Wait until you get home and have some money for yourself, you will find a boyfriend later. As for the males, you know better.
