Melissa Stockwell:

Was the first female American soldier in history to lose a limb in active combat and was the first Iraq War veteran to compete in the Paralympic Games as a swimmer in 2008 • Was one of four athletes featured in a documentary called “Warrior Champions” • Completed her residency in prosthetics where she fit other amputees with prosthetic devices.

Translated through “His Majesty the King’s Guard” Facebook page:

"CONGRATULATIONS! Today was universal military adopted in Parliament. Congratulations to everyone who worked to make equal opportunities a defense, not to mention all the girls who have rolled up their arms and gave way! The new law means that girls born in 1997 or later are conscripts on par with the boys. The Garden is 15.2% of the conscripts girls today and the number is rising. Diversity provides expertise and increased operational capability! Did someone so gardist Ingvild Shield on "Good Morning Norway" today?"
