U.S. Representative Colleen Hanabusa (HI-01), member of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement after the Department of Defense announced it will begin to allow women to serve in combat roles.

"Throughout our history, women have played an integral role in our military. I applaud the Department of Defense for eliminating this outdated policy and recognizing the important, evolving role of women in the Armed Forces. I believe that all qualified Americans, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, should be given the same opportunity to serve their country."
