Marines Testing Women In Combat Jobs

There may be some anxiety among male Marines as female officers work their way into infantry and other combat jobs that historically have been open only to men, the Marine Corps commandant said this week.

Gen. James F. Amos said early steps to begin moving women into artillery, tank air defense and combat engineer units have been successful, but the more difficult tests lie ahead.

“Change doesn’t come easy to the United States Marine Corps,” Gen. Amos told an audience at the National Press Club on Tuesday. “But when it does, when it’s rooted, it lasts forever. So I think we’ll work our way through it.”

Unintelligent cowards.
