All combat jobs open to women in the military

The Defense Department will lift all gender-based restrictions on military service starting in January, Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced Thursday.

Carter’s decision comes as a rebuke to an internal recommendation from the Marine Corps that sought to keep some jobs closed to women.
