Marine General: Women ready for combat
By The Associated Press
PARRIS ISLAND, S.C. - The first female Marine Corps general in charge of its basic training site on Parris Island says she's confident women in the Corps will be able to handle combat.
Brig. Gen. Loretta Reynolds says the Pentagon's lifting of the combat exclusion against women earlier this year means commanders will be able to "just use the talent that they have."
General Reynolds also says she doesn't think the type of basic training recruits endure will change much.
