The Marine Corps has been ordered to come up with a plan to make its enlisted entry-level training co-ed, and to make its job titles more gender-neutral following the recent move to open all military combat roles to women.
In a Jan. 1 memo to Marine Commandant Gen. Robert Neller, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus requested a "detailed plan" on how the service will fully integrate its boot camp and Officer Candidate School. The plan is due Jan. 15 and will be implemented by April 1, the memo states.
