03/06/2018 Marine Corps Times: "Where are the [combat] female Marines?" — "Two years after the Defense Department ordered the Marine Corps to open all combat arms career fields to women, less than 100 women have successfully entered those previously male-only jobs. A total of 92 women are operating in a multitude of combat billets across the Corps, from rifleman to armored reconnaissance to combat engineers. Yet only 11 enlisted women are serving today in the traditional “03” infantry career fields... [and] only one female officer has graduated the grueling Infantry Officer Course and is serving currently as an 0302 infantry platoon commander."
