    With women getting their shot at any job for which they can qualify getting shot, the "almost" can finally be dropped.
    Seriously though, the only real change is that now women can have a combat arms MOS and "earn" a CIB.

      What are those?
      I was under the impression that now they would qualify for combat pay and their families would be getting their "hazard pay" stipend.

          How about MOS?
