Grueling Marine training course opened to women

Posted: Updated:

(CBS 8) - Starting in September, female marines will be allowed to participate in one of the most grueling qualification courses the United States military has to offer.

The Combat Endurance Test is one of the last male-only domains in the military. The 86 day course is a qualification for intensive combat roles like infantry.

The military is inviting volunteers to determine whether females can and should engage in those roles.
