No ongoing monitoring of women’s combat integration

SUMMARY: The July Government Accountability Office report reveals that DoD does not have an integration strategy after January 2016, when combat positions will be opened to women. There is some investigation into integration challenges, such as unit cohesion, women’s health and facilities. The report goes on to claim, “without ongoing monitoring of integration progress, it will be difficult for DoD to help the services overcome potential obstacles.’
