Several Fort Hood combat units that used to be exclusive to men may soon have a few women in the ranks.

The change, still under review by the Army, is due to a shift in policy that opens up six military occupational specialties to female soldiers and moves to eliminate “co-location” restrictions, which prohibited otherwise qualified women from serving in combat ground units, such as armored or infantry battalions, according to Army and Defense Department news releases.

        A policy, while stylish, will lead to failure and the deaths of troops in combat.
