The Army has selected 22 women for training to become infantry and armor officers. The women were chosen from applicants who completed officer candidate school (OCS), ROTC, and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Once commissioned as second lieutenants, the candidates will enter branch-specific training at Fort Benning, Ga. There, they must meet the same rigorous requirements as their male counterparts before they would be able to assume their roles in the infantry and armor communities.
