Women in combat
WASHINGTON- Women may be able to train for previously men-only combat roles, like Army Rangers or Navy Seals, by mid 2015. The plans have yet to be announced by the Pentagon but the Associated Press obtained details. The idea is to slowly bring women into thousands of combat jobs and would require them to meet the same physical and mental standards as men. It would qualify women for jobs in certain infantry, armor, commando and other front-line positions in the Army, Navy Air Force and Marines, including the country's elite special operations forces.
