Wednesday Hero


This post was suggested by Steve

Capt. Linda Bray

Capt. Linda Bray 
 53 years old from Clemmons, North Carolina
 988th Military Police Company

  U.S. Army

Capt. Linda Bray made national headlines when she became the first woman in U.S. history to lead troops into combat during the 1989 invasion of Panama. As a result she was met with a lot of resistance and anger to what she had accomplished because she was a woman. Bray and 45 soldiers under her command, nearly all of them men, encountered a unit of Panamanian special operations soldiers holed up inside a military barracks and dog kennel. They killed three of the enemy and took one prisoner before the rest were forced to flee.
