Washington, DC - U.S. Senator Kay Hagan today released the following statement on the Pentagon's decision to lift the 1994 ban on women serving in combat:

"The Pentagon's decision to allow women to serve in combat roles is a positive step. Women will now be able to serve our country in new capacities, and they will be afforded more opportunities for the same career advancement as their male counterparts. As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and a Senator from the state with the 3rd-largest military presence in the nation, I thank all of our service members - male and female, and I am committed to working with the Pentagon to implement this policy."
