Women to be fully integrated into the US armed forces

March is Women's History Month, meant to honor the important role women play in society. Militaries have been male-dominated institutions, but that's changing in a big way across the globe and in the USCCTV Americas's Hendrik Sybrandy filed this report.

Highlights:
