Abstract:

The TRADOC Women In Combat Study was conducted by the Women In Combat Task Force WCTF Study Group organized under the Combined Arms Integration Directorate, Combined Arms Combat Developments Activity, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. This document is the coordinating draft report. The TRADOC Women In Combat Study was undertaken as a short-term effort to evaluate the current Army policy governing assignment and utilization of women soldiers in the combat zone, focusing on the Direct combat Probability Coding policy. The purpose of the study was to determine if changes are required to current Army policy governing utilization of women in combat. Findings are based on research of literature pertinent to the roles of women in combat, workshops conducted by the WOTF with TRADOC Proponency Offices, visits to FORSCOM and TRADOC posts and units, briefings to field commanders and questionnaires and interviews with selected groups of Army personnel.
