Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner has had a whirlwind year. After transitioning from a male Olympian to a 66 year-old woman, the proud transgender was nearly indicted on vehicular manslaughter charges before she was saved by her liberal fans, who have effectively deified her.

This week, it was revealed that Jenner has been named “Woman of the Year” by Glamour Magazine, a decision which has come as a slap in the face to REAL women everywhere.

One Marine, however, is refusing to take this lying down. Rebecca Turpin is a First Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps, and though she’s too humble to speak up for herself, her story is going viral as many are demanding she be named woman of the year.

According to Q Political, Turpin was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal with a Combat “V” [valor] device for the brave actions she took in a fire fight. Here’s her story, according to the viral Facebook post:

This is Marine 1st Lt. Rebecca Turpin.

Probably doesn’t deserve woman of the year as much as Bruce Jenner. Not as brave, either.

One particular mission earned her the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal with a valor device, one of the few women to ever receive it it.

The convoy of 18 vehicles departed around 4 a.m. for a mission expected to take only a day. They wouldn’t finish until more than two days later. After hitting multiple improvised explosive devices, Turpin would keep the mission going by managing the vehicle losses and keeping her men alive.

When Turpin’s convoy came under heavy fire in a small village as they proceeded with the objective, she called in a pair of Cobra helicopters and directed the air support to protect the convoy, eliminating or dispersing the threats. As things quieted down, the convoy began to leave the village, but the insurgents reappeared, beginning to fire again. Turpin, directing the machine gunners and Cobras, skillfully escaped with her convoy and completed the mission.

SHARE if you think this American hero is the REAL woman of the year! Our liberal nation may refuse to recognize you, Rebecca, but here at Tell Me Now, we salute you!
