As the Associated Press reported Wednesday, “women will soon become eligible for hundreds of thousands of front-line positions and possibly elite commando jobs.” The orders Defense Secretary Leon Panetta gave to military services allow a grace period until 2016 for commanders to “seek special exceptions” for certain positions.
