Every job in the military is now being opened to women, including combat.

FOX's Rachel Sutherland in Washington:

Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced all commando jobs will be open to women, across all branches of the military...

(Carter) "They'll be able to serve as Army Rangers and Green Berets, Navy SEALS, Marine Corps infantry, Air Force Parajumpers..."

Defense Secretary Ash Carter cautioned women must meet standards and qualify for the roles...

(Carter) "There should be no quotas, or perception thereof."

Military leaders have 30 days to make the historic changes, which Carter says must be implemented in a deliberate, objective manner.
