The Faceless Women of the Marine Corps Infantry Officer Course

Fighting to Join the Ranks - Slide Show - NYTimes.com-1 Another two women recently failed the Marine Corps Infantry Officer Course, joining the other two who failed late last year. I’m proud of them for trying. I’m fascinated by the photos that accompany the stories. There are always photos of the women, but their faces are never shown. I’m guessing there is probably some rule There is a Pentagon rule that protects the women from being identified, so the photographers cannot publish pictures showing their faces.
