First Women Marines Graduate from Infantry Training

Hosted by

The Marines' infantry program requires candidates to spend long days and nights in primitive conditions and to complete a grueling 20 kilometer hike with 85 pounds of gear. For the first time today, three women graduated from the Marine Corps Infantry Training Program at Camp Geiger, North Carolina. Today's graduation is part of a closely watched experiment for integrating women into combat. Jim Michaels, military reporter for USA Today, looks at what might be next for them.
