Town hall clerk Monika Pawlik, 24, holds her rifle after a break during her territorial soldiers training near a shooting range near Siedlce, Poland, April 21, 2018. When Pawlik was doing her training, she says, she learned how to fire weapons and was surprised to find she was no weaker than the men. She wants to be a professional soldier. "If I go for something, I take it to the end," she said. "But I'm not doing it all for myself. I'm also doing this for the baby." REUTERS/Kacper Pempel SEARCH "POLAND MILITARY" FOR THIS STORY.
