A third pair of female Marine lieutenants has failed to complete the Corps' Infantry Officer Course at Quantico, Va.
She won't head into ground combat as an infantry Marine anytime soon, but she is heading into the Corps' all-male infantry training school this March, the first of two to do so since the Pentagon last week lifted its ban on women in combat roles.
Female Marine officers are unlikely to join the infantry anytime soon, in part because of a lack of volunteers for the Marine Corps' Infantry Officer Course, which was opened to women in September.
