Women Attend Marine Boot Camp At Parris Island, South Carolina

PARRIS ISLAND, SC - FEBRUARY 27: Marine recruits Ngoclan Nguyen (front) of Denver, Colorado and Kaitlyn Virgue of Brentwood, New Hampshire practice martial arts during boot camp February 27, 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 On January 24, 2013 Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta rescinded an order, which had been in place since 1994, that restricted women from being attached to ground combat units. About six percent of enlisted Marines are female. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)
