Reuters reports that “U.S. armed forces leaders said on Tuesday that women should be required to register for the military draft, along with men, as the military moves toward integrating them fully into combat positions.”  

“Congress should begin to look at legislation requiring women to register for the Selective Service, they told a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on women in combat.”  

“‘I think that all eligible and qualified men and women should register for the draft,’ said General Robert Neller, the commandant of the Marine Corps.”
