In September, 114 women graduated from the Marine boot camp at Parris Island, South Carolina.
From there, 42 passed the physical requirements for training, 19 volunteered to do it, 15 followed through, seven made it through the first month, and just four completed the course. Yesterday, three of those women graduated from Camp Geiger in North Carolina.
Joining us now to talk about this milestone is Major Mary Jennings Hegar, who was part of a lawsuit that challenged the Department of Defense's ban on women serving in ground combat.
