When did women start serving in combat positions?
Women, according to the Aspin Rules, are exempt from assignment to Direct Ground Combat units. This means that females cannot be assigned below brigade level to Combat Arms units (Infantry, Armor, Artillery). Pilots, however, can be female since they are not expected to participate in ground combat. This rule still exists, however, due to the nature of modern warfare, women in combat support and combat service support units are frequently encountered with situations in which mission accomplishment requires them to engage in ground combat. The women in the United States military are great assets to our combat effectiveness and have proven time and again that they are valuable members of the team, even if they don't serve in combat positions.

Are there women in army combat?
With the large amount of women in the modern army, women inevitably find themselves in combat situations. Women are not intentionally put into combat situations. Women are not allowed into the fire and maneuver branches of armor and infantry. These are the two army branches that go out looking to get into close combat with the enemy. Everyone else, and subsequently the women, avoid direct enemy contact.

Did women from other countries besides the us serve in world war 2?
Some woman were in the French Resistance. And many women served in the Soviet Red Army (russian army) And no women served in the U.S. army. In Britain, the U.S. and many Allied countries women did serve in the armed forces in World War 2 but not in a combat role. The Soviet Union was unusual in having women in combat. Obviously, in the case of resistance movements, the distinction between combat roles and others may be blurred.
