Pentagon to OK Partial Lift on Women's Combat Ban

The Pentagon is expected to make a recommendation to Congress on Thursday advancing the role of women in combat, according to defense officials.

Current rules bar women from serving in infantry, armor or special operations forces and don’t allow women to be officially assigned below the brigade level.

Thursday’s announcement is expected to keep those unit bans while calling for women to be officially assigned to jobs at the battalion level, which would doctrinally put them closer to combat areas.
