Some 350,000 women serve in active or reserve duty, but their stories are rarely told. In the new book, Powder: Writing by Women in the Ranks, from Vietnam to Iraq, dozens of women veterans have written poems and essays about their heroic, and sometimes brutal, service. Host Liane Hansen talks with Charlotte Brock, a former Marine Corp officer, about her wartime experience. Warning: Graphic content.
