Our congratulations to Tariqka Sheffey, who’s won this award for posting a ‘selfie’ on Instagram and bragging about staying in her car to avoid saluting the US flag:
The US Army clearly needs to recruit more women like Ms Sheffey. Their first challenge should be to drive the Russians out of the Crimean peninsula. No need to send in any male soldiers to support them. It could be a ‘real world’ test of the value – or otherwise – of female soldiers in the heat of battle.
