US May Leave Small Number in Afghanistan

The United States may drastically lower the number of soldiers it leaves stationed in Afghanistan, due to less Taliban interference in the Afghanistan presidential elections this past April 5.

The top NATO and US commanders have recommended leaving around 10,000 US soldiers in order to train and Afghanistan's own security force and conduct counterterrorism operations. Due to a lack of cohesive and disruptive attacks, however, some high-ranking US officials are now considering leaving as few as 5,000 soldiers. This would put a higher burden on Afghanistan's own soldiers and police forces.

Army Opens 13A Field Artillery Officer Positions to Women

Another MOS has opened most of its doors to women - a directive sent out today opens most 13A Field Artillery Officer positions to women as well as men.

This will open up about 1,900 potential jobs to women in the active duty component, and a combined 1,700 in the Reserve and National Guard. This does not open up field artillery officer positions in the special operations units or certain positions which may have "Male" attached as a skill identifier.
