Army Won’t Lower Standards for Women

Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno told USA Today that “the service will not lower physical standards as it works to comply with a Pentagon order to open all military jobs to women, including the infantry and other physically demanding ‘ground combat’ fields.”

“The services have until January 2016 to comply with the order. Exceptions would require approval of the Defense secretary.”
