The Marine Corps is looking for more female infantry officers, according to an administrative message released in early August. This is in lieu of Marine Corps Commandant Gen. David Berger’s goal of gender diversity among infantry officers. It is also an opportunity for officers to have a lateral move from their current military occupational specialty into the infantry field. This change is in the hopes of increasing the number of women who are qualified to be infantry captains and lieutenants. Those interested and eligible have until Sept. 30 to submit their packets. The course will begin in January 2021.
