The Pentagon has allowed women to take part in any combat operations

The U.S. Secretary of defense Ashton Carter Monday, November 3, announced the lifting of all restrictions associated with the service of women in the U.S. army.

According to the head of the Pentagon, now women can serve in the army Rangers, green berets, Navy seals, airborne troops and all the other, previously open only to men, reports BBC news service.

The U.S. armed forces can no longer afford not to use half of the talents and skills of the country, said Carter.

Thus, the Ministry of defense did not agree with the opinion of the Chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, who offered to exclude women from certain operations on the front line.
