PARRIS ISLAND, SC - FEBRUARY 26: LtCol. Gabrielle Hermes (2nd from Left), inspects Female Marine recruits under her command and nearing their graduation from boot camp on February 26, 2013 at MCRD Parris Island, South Carolina. Female enlisted Marines have gone through recruit training at the base since 1949. About 11 percent of female recruits who arrive at the boot camp fail to complete the training, which can be physically and mentally demanding. On January 24, 2013 Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta rescinded an order, which had been in place since 1994, that restricted women from being attached to ground combat units.
