I know of a female 1LT that is serving as a fire direction officer right now in a cannon battery. I have been in the army over six years and I have never seen a female serve in any artillery job. Has the policy forbidding women serving in combat jobs been changed? Is there some loophole that allowed her to get that slot? I'm not saying it is a bad thing that she is the FDO, I just want to know how this can happen.
