BREAKING: US Military To Open All Combat Jobs To Women.Defense Secretary Ash Carter will order military to open up all combat jobs, including Infantry, to women.From FOX News:Defense Secretary Ash Carter will order the military to open up all combat jobs to women.The Associated Press reported on Thursday Carter is giving the armed services until Jan. 1 to submit plans to make the historic change.Carter's official announcement is expected later Thursday.It rebuffs arguments from the Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman that the Marine Corps should be allowed to exclude women from certain front-line combat jobs, citing studies showing that mixed-gender units aren't as capable as all-male units.A senior defense official says all the services will have to begin putting plans in place by April 1.The official was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.


While this is certainly a big decision, we can't see we didn't see it coming sooner or later. One thing is for sure, this is will definitely impact the military in a big way.We would love to hear what our fans have to say about this, let us know what you think in the comments or on social media! Is this a good change, or bad, and why?[mwi-cat-listing cat="94" ppp="4" cols="4" desc="false" type="view" btn_color="black" ]
