Retired U.S. Air Force Col. Martha McSally flew an A-10 Warthog and was the first woman in U.S. history to command a fighter squadron in combat. Can she get any more awesome? Yes she can. She also sued the Pentagon over requiring women to wear Muslim garb when they were off base in Saudi Arabia. She ended up going the legislation route and getting it passed (on both sides of the aisle) to stop what she calls a female apartheid on the military and bad policy. She says her oath is to the Constitution only, not some religious law in Saudi Arabia.
After serving her country she is now running for the House in Arizona to replace Gabby Giffords and boy do I ever hope she wins.
