California veteran Mary Bandini reflects on challenges for women in the military
The Madeleine Brand Show|
There are almost 170,000 female military veterans in California. Former Staff Seargant Mary Bandini is one - a machine gunner who served in Bosnia and Qatar. She saw combat in what was considered peacetime when a peace keeping mission turned into a combat mission after 9/11. What unique challenges do women face within the military hierarchy and medical system? The Woodland Hills native shares her war stories with us.
