Women Attend Marine Boot Camp At Parris Island, South Carolina

Number of women in US combat roles unlikely to boom: official

Female Marine recruits are disciplined with some unscheduled physical training in the sand pit during boot camp on February 27, 2013 at MCRD Parris Island, South CarolinaIn January 2013, at the request of US President Barack Obama, the Pentagon made the historic move of ordering all branches of the armed forces to open up ground combat jobs to women by 2016. General David Perkins, who heads up the US Army Training and Doctrine Command, said military studies and a look at the experience of Canada, which has for years allowed women in combat, showed few women are likely to choose such roles. The Pentagon decision to allow women in combat overturned a 1994 ruling barring women from units with a direct ground combat role.
