AR 600-13 Army Policy for the Assignment of Female Soldiers
As noted widely throughout the press, Army 1 st Lieutenant Ashley White died on 22 October in Kandahar when the joint special operations task force to which she was attached triggered an IED. In a press release, U. Her efforts highlight both the importance and necessity of women on the battlefield today. Despite the public praise and emphasis on the value of women on the battlefield, the fact remains that Ashley White should not have been in the company of that particular assault force on that day in Kandahar. In fact, unless U. Forces-Afghanistan USFOR-A had granted an exception specifically for White to be assigned to that particular ground unit, she should not have been there at all. The rule excluded women from non-combat units or missions if the risks of exposure to direct combat, hostile fire, or capture were equal to or greater than the risk in the combat units they supported.

The direct ground combat exclusion rule of the United States Armed Forces , commonly referred as Combat Exclusion Policy , dates back to when the Women's Armed Services Integration Act excluded women from combat positions. On April 28, , combat exclusion was lifted from aviation positions by Secretary of Defense Les Aspin , permitting women to serve in almost any aviation capacity. Service members are eligible to be assigned to all positions for which they are qualified, except that women shall be excluded from assignment to units below the brigade level whose primary mission is to engage in direct combat on the ground. In , a commission headed by Lester L. Lyles , a retired Air Force general, recommended eliminating the policy, calling it a hindrance to promotion. In February , a review of Pentagon policies resulted in the lifting of restrictions on 14, military positions. Women remained ineligible to serve in , positions, about a fifth of the armed forces.
