Army to open 14,000 jobs for women
The U.S. Army will start to place women in nearly 14,000 combat related jobs. A new Defense Department policy was implemented that will open up six military occupational specialties and place women in 37 battalions across nine brigade combat teams. The policy will restrict women from serving in infantry, armor, and special operations forces, but will allow them to serve at the battalion level, which in the past has been considered too close to combat.
