Marine to pilot F-35B fighter jet

“I saw the pink ones but [those] aren’t girls and [people] in the Army don’t wear pink,” she wrote in her letter, as reported in Military Times.com.
One of the recipients of the letter was Jeff Imel, an executive with Scranton, Pa.-based BMC Toys, who quickly responded with an “overdue update” of an ongoing project to fashion the female figures.

“The general concept is a set of female combat toy soldier figures in the style of the plastic Army men from WW2-Cold War era that would blend in with existing figures fro
