Within a few days of Brown’s heroic acts, however, the Army pulled her out of the remote camp in Paktika province where she was serving with a cavalry unit because, her platoon commander said, Army restrictions on women in combat barred her from such missions.

“We weren’t supposed to take her out” on missions “but we had to because there was no other medic,” said Lt. Martin Robbins, a platoon leader with Charlie Troop, 4th Squadron, 73rd Cavalry Regiment, whose men Brown saved. “By regulations you’re not supposed to,” he said, but Brown “was one of the guys, mixing it up, clearing rooms, doing everything that anybody else was doing.”
