Women headed for combat.
"The United States Army plans to force female soldiers into land combat units, despite current regulations and a law requiring prior notice to Congress," stated a December 9 press release by the Center for Military Readiness, a private think tank. According to Pentagon briefing documents obtained by the group, "some Army leaders believe there might not be enough male soldiers to fill the new 'unit of action' combat brigades. They are therefore making incremental changes in policy that will soon force young unprepared women--many of them mothers--to fight in land combat."
