what year were women allowed to fight in the U.S. military?

And In the front line as well?







Zach Bamberger
front line positions for women are discouraged today, but not illegal. There are (I believe) some front line women serving currently. Women in the military go all the way back to World War I, but they were in mostly (if not only) administrative positions among general's staff and 'home guard' pilots. Some women did sneek in to combat in the Revolutionary War and Civil War, but there were only a small amount. Other than that frontline women was not until fairly recently.

There is no combat posiiton for women in any branch of the military, except airforce which would be a pilot.

They are allowed to FIGHT today, altho sent to front line deployment in support operations.

Technically speaking women are sill banned from fighting on the front line in the US Military. However, women have been supporting combat opperations every since we've had a military.
