Abstract:

When I chose, Women in Combat Arms, as the topic for my research paper I must admit that I had a preconceived notion that there was no place for women in the combat arms. After several months of research, studying the pros and cons, I am still convinced there is no room for women in the combat arms. My intent with this paper is to discuss some of these pros and cons, my conclusion and finally my recommendation. But first I will provide a history of women in U. S. Armed Services and where we are today. We will look at whether or not other countries of the world are incorporating women into the combat arms of their Armed services.
