Air Force Women Are Trained, Assigned, And Administered Under Essentially The Same As Men.
June 1976 Air Force Women Are Trained, Assigned, And Administered Under Essentially The Same As Men. This contribution was recognized by Congress when it passed the Women's Armed Forces Integration Act on June 12, 1948. This act recognized women as a prominent part of the Armed Forces, and created the Women in the Air Force as an integral segment of the Air Force. Since women were not organized as a separate corps, they will need to compete with men for promotion.
Today, they are trained, assigned, and administered under essentially the same policies and procedures as men unless there is a legal or rational reason for the difference. Women officers receive their commissions through the Officer Training School, a coeducational training school at Lackland AFB, Tex., or a coeducational Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps (AFROTC) course which opened to all AFROTC detachments in the fall of 1970. In June, 1976, women were admitted to the Air Force Academy.
