Meet the members of team Lioness, the military heroines of one of the most important untold stories of the Iraq war. As per official military regulation, these women received virtually no combat training before being sent to Iraq to serve in non-combat details. But the military commanders on the ground needed female soldiers to help diffuse tensions with local civilians and sent the Lionesses out on missions with all male combat units. Inevitably, the members of team Lioness found themselves in deadly firefights.
