New Policy Moves Female Soldiers Closer to Combat

Ad Feedback

Women's roles in combat could soon be changing as the Pentagon is making plans to let women serve closer to the front lines.

New rules are reportedly being implemented that will allow women to serve at the battalion level, which until now has been considered too close to combat.

The new policy would legalize what's already a reality: for the past decade in Iraq and Afghanistan, female soldiers have lost their lives in combat.

Women still won't be allowed to serve in infantry, armor, and special operations forces.

The changes apply primarily to the Army and the Marine Corps.
