The Army will open up a lot more positions for women in 2014 - about 33,000 jobs total. The new positions are available as part of the elimination by the Department of Defense of the direct ground combat exclusion policy (put in place in 1994). The policy barred women, regardless of their military occupational specialty (MOS), from being assigned to any combat units below the brigade level.
