First Afghan Female Helicopters Pilots

(CBS News) FORT RUCKER, Ala. - The last American combat troops will exit Afghanistan at the end of 2014. They've been training Afghans to take over the fight. You might be surprised by who is answering the call to defend Afghanistan. If you think of Afghan women as downtrodden and of Afghans as not willing to fight for their own country, you need to meet Sourya Saleh and Masooma Hussaini. "We are Afghan," Hussaini said. "That's our duty. We have to defend our country."
