At a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Tuesday, top Army and Marine Corps officers said they believe women should soon register for the draft now that all combat jobs are open to women. In response to a question on the issue from Sen. Claire McCaskill, (D-Missouri), Gen. Robert B. Neller, the Marine Corps Commandant, said he supports it fully:

Senator, it's my personal view that, based on this lifting of restrictions ... every American who's physically qualified should register for the draft.
