Vermont became the first state in the country to allow women in all combat units of the state’s Army National Guard. The National Guard Bureau recently gave authorization for the guard’s First Squadron, 172nd Cavalry and the 86th Infantry Brigade Combat Team.

86th Brigade Commander Colonel Brey Hopkins said there was “no doubt” in his mind that including women in combat units will strengthen the guard’s fighting force.

Officials said the Vermont National Guard will continue to broaden their diversity and inclusion in the organization.
