Survey: Women Interested in Military Want Combat Jobs
Posted February 25th, 2014 @ 6:30pm by KFBK News

There apparently aren't a lot of women in the Army who are eager to move into one of the combat jobs that will now be available to them. A survey finds that only a small fraction of them - less than 8 percent - are interested in a combat role. But those who say they want one of those jobs say they want to go right into the heart of battle.

An overwhelming number of them said they'd like to be a Night Stalker - a member of the elite special operations helicopter crews who flew the Navy SEALS into Osama bin Laden's compound.
