The article focuses on the recommendation of the Military Leadership Diversity Commission to put women into combat roles in the U.S. It notes that the Diversity Commission has suggested broader diversity in the military with emphasis on the inclusion of women in combat roles, stressing that the military's exclusion of women in combat roles is out of sync with the realities of present-day warfare. Remarks from Colonel Ron Ray regarding the Diversity Commission recommendations are also presented.
