    Just a question I've been curious about. What combat positions does the academy provide for females?

    Pilot/CSO/ABM! Every USAF airframe cockpit is open to females, and many of which routinely fly combat sorties. There are many other jobs with the potential to deploy, including Acquisitions, Intelligence, Logistics, Security Forces, etc. I also happen to know of a female Space Officer currently deployed to a covert location downrange.Battlefield Airman positions (STO/CRO/ALO) are currently closed to women, but the Pentagon is currently reviewing that restriction.

    ALO is open to women, and there are currently two. STO and CRO are likely to be opened to women in 2016.
