Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Texas Congressman Joaquin Castro released this statement following the decision by the Department of Defense to lift the ban on women serving in combat:

"The decision by the Department of Defense to include women in combat positions is welcomed and long overdue. Service to our country should not be dependent on gender. I commend our military for the steps it has taken over the past few years to be reflective of our society and I will continue to advocate for our American troops in Texas and across the globe."
