New Army Chief of Staff Seems Lukewarm on Women in Combat

SUMMARY: New Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley is taking a very calculated approach to deciding whether to recommend any all-male combat roles remain closed to women. Milley is remaining quiet on his personal views, claiming to be “right on the line,” regarding this important decision. This will be one of the earliest decisions Milley makes in his capacity as Chief of staff, and may set an important trend for the rest of his term.
