US Army opens jobs in combat battalions to women

The policy change opens thousands of jobs to female soldiers by loosening restrictions meant to keep them away from the battlefield.



Fort Campbell: Female soldiers this week are moving into new jobs in once all-male units as the US Army breaks down formal barriers in recognition of what`s already happened in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The policy change announced earlier this year is being tested at nine brigades before going Army-wide. It opens thousands of jobs to female soldiers by loosening restrictions meant to keep them away from the battlefield.
The experience on the ground in the past decade showed women were fighting and dying alongside male soldiers anyway.
