BREAKING: Panetta opens combat roles to women

AP: Senior defense officials say Pentagon chief Leon Panetta is removing the US military’s ban on women serving in combat. The move opens hundreds of thousands of front-line positions and potentially elite commando jobs.

The groundbreaking move overturns a 1994 rule banning women from being assigned to smaller combat ground units. Military services have until January 2016 to seek special exceptions if they believe any positions must remain closed to women.
