In the case of the 112th, it wasn't the first time the unit had been inactivated, and it wouldn't be the last.

    Jan 23, 2014

    WASHINGTON (Jan. 24, 2014)--One year ago this week, the Department of Defense (DoD) announced the end of the direct ground combat exclusion policy, which restricted female service members from serving in unit-level positions below the brigade level with the primary mission of direct ground combat engagement. Now a year later, the Army announces its recent notification to Congress, through the DoD, to open 33K positions as part of its Soldier 2020 initiative. The Army's Soldier 2020 initiative sets the conditions for senior leaders to balance and transition the force in a way that makes the Army stronger, by having the best-qualified Soldiers for each job within the Army profession. Prior to the DoD rescinding the direct ground combat exclusion policy, the Army had already begun 'leaning forward' with a scientific approach to re-validate performance standards for each Military Occupational Specialty (MOS).
