GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) - Stephanie Shannon is a decorated military veteran. She served in Iraq during Desert Shield and Desert Storm.
"I would really have a problem with them drafting women," Shannon said.
Shannon said she saw the effects of combat first hand. She doesn't like the idea of eligible women being forced to sign up for the military draft.
"Military is not for everybody. It's a certain type of strong willed individual that's willing to risk to risk their life to serve their country. Not everybody is cut like that," Shannon said.
