Last winter, Pawlik's days were spent crawling through mud and digging trenches in frozen ground, training as a volunteer for Poland's territorial army. 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." Painting on the wall depicts late Pope John Paul II.
