Two female US Marines assigned to infantry

The US Marine Corps is assigning two women to frontline infantry roles, a first for the armed service under new Pentagon rules opening all combat jobs to women. In a statement Tuesday, the Marine Corps said it had granted requests from two enlisted women to transfer into “ground combat arms specialties.” One will become a machinegunner, the other a rifleman. “Requests like these help the Marine Corps to continue the implementation of gender integration throughout all Military Occupational Specialties,” the Marines said.
