    Female Marines Conduct 1st Afghan Mission

    March 10, 2009
    Marine Corps News

    FARAH PROVINCE, Afghanistan – Marines of the 3rd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment -- the ground combat element of Special Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force Afghanistan -- now have a special group of people to help them complete their mission in Afghanistan.

    The task force’s all-female Marine team is interacting with the Afghan female population in southern Afghanistan -- a task considered culturally unacceptable for the male Marines operating there.

    Sounds like good news. I have no problem with the Afghan mission and fully supports its goals.

    The Marines are innovators.

    This is just another example. They were also responsible for the change in tactics that resulted in victory in Iraq.
