ITS HARD TO BE A STRONG FEMALE NCO IN THE MILITARY?

The topic is one that I know is probably very touchy to alot of females because they are probably saying, heck it's hard to be a female period.
Once you reach the NCO level you have to go head to head and toe to toe with males who feel like you got there with your body and not your mind and hard work. I know that it is very frustrating and we really get tired of having to prove ourselves over and over again.
The one thing that we want people to see is that we are Non commissioned Officers and we are here to do a job and we want the respect. Over the years I have had to go head to head with male NCO's to show them that I was capable of accomplishing the mission, solving the problem, giving direction and putting the free of GOD in soldiers just as well, if not better than they were. I have had to do the stare down, the argue down, the get out of my office until you are able to respect me down, the knock down drag out down and the down right do it my way or don't get nothing down. To show people who they were working with. I have been in places where males soldiers were below standard and they would be called on to do a project before me because I was a female and in the end I not only had to fix it, I had to teach others how it was supposed to be done. So Females nothing is easy and you will always have to fight for your place.
It is very Hard to be a Strong female in The Military but continue to stay strong, fight the good fight with knowledge and never let them see you sweat. FEMALE STRONG! LOL!!!!

ITTY BITTY TITTY COMMITTEE!! AND NO PUSH UP!


ITTY BITTY TITTY COMMITTEE! And no PUSH UP’s!!!
I am sure that a lot of the females in the Army are jumping for joy that they are getting rid of the push up. Well let me tell you something, stop being selfish, think about your sisters that need this event to help pump up there upper half.
Now I understand that it can be hard for some of my top heavy sisters but just look at it as a way to keep you toned. But, for females like me who were truly lacking when I first joined the military and the more pushups I did the better my TOP became. I say that with a great smile, you know how we use to do the fire engines and for females it really helped to tone our butts. I’m just saying the ARMY is doing an injustice to us poor ladies who fall in that Itty Bitty Titty Committee. We get teased enough now about not having nothing. Now we won’t even be building up those muscles so that we can eventually walk around like they grew over night. Hey I’m just saying. So to all my sisters in Arms with the Itty Bitty Titties, Keep pushing cause the Army is taking away or one way to make it all better. To all my topheavy sisters, I know you are laughing but payback is coming. I’m just saying!!!
I am laughing so hard while wring this, so please don’t get offended because without the pushup I would still be stuffing my bra………

Are you serving with a Purpose, a Goal, and Motivation to reach your Highest Poential?


Are you giving in to your environment or, are you serving with a driving force.
It’s hard being a female in the military, then you throw in being a wife, mother and mentor.
When you put passion, determination and strength behind reaching your destiny the right people and situations will be drawn to you and make everything work out.
Don’t sit around with an attitude because things aren’t going your way, just learn all there is to learn, know more than is expected and be there ahead of the rest.
Trust me when I say that if you are strong and positive in your doing you will be on top and all that doubt your abilities will soon turn to you for answers.
BEEN THERE DONE THAT “DESIGNED” THE T-SHIRT!
