Oh .... thank you.

Three weeks sounds a bit short. Did the CP get the 'rush' course?

Just curious, what is the normal length of time for a woman conscript serving the first time in the armed forces?

Yes it was a "short training". Normally you are in the military for 15 months. But this was a special course I think....

haha, noway I´ll do that :P
Girls don´t do military service in Sweden. Boys have to, but due to "money cuts" in the military, many boys are allowed to skip it nowadays.

Hmm, I think it have always been that way. But I´m not 100 % sure...
I´m only 20 years old so I dont have that much knowledge of things like that =)

So, Yennie ... women volunteer to serve in the Swedish military ?
Whereas men are conscripted.
Quite a dichotomy .... eh ?

I don't think CP would be the only woman in the military.
In your opinion, roughly, how many women were 'volunteered' to serve at the same that there were pictures of the CP doing her thing?

Why are her fingers so red? Is this pseudo-blood?

From today: Victoria and her father are visiting the Viking 03 exercise (an military exercise).
Someone should give them a coat!

This is the second time in the past couple of days where Victoria, surrounded by men, has looked cold. As a man, of courteous ways, I have to be saddened by this.
Sure, in this case, everybody's eyes may not be on her but still a woman looks cold. The right thing to do is to offer her a coat. And I hope that she will become a godmother to this baby or anything baby. It would be a nice gesture.

I guess that´s the side effect of emancipation. You want to be head of state like a man, so you have to freeze like a man
But it´s sadly a fact, that women are freezing all the time, while men can even stand it just to wear a T-shirt in winter.
