"When you're attached, it's sort of like being a stepchild. There's the parents, and everyone takes care of each other, and then there's the stepchildren, and you don't get that much attention." says Elizabeth Tran of the California Army National Guard.

The Department of Defense has implemented this policy change, because the battlefield has changed. In a statement issued by the DOD, "The modern-day battlefield is non-linear and fluid, with no clearly defined front line or safer rear area."

Now that women can be assigned to any area of the battlefield, as many as 14,325 positions are now open to them.

"For me it means the glass ceiling has finally been lifted." adds Tran.
