Newly recruited female marines take their lunch with fellow soldiers after undergoing drills inside the marine headquarters in the town of Ternate, Cavite city, south of Manila. There are an estimated 350 women combatants in the 10,000-member Philippine marines who go through the same rigid physical and mental training as their men counterparts.

CinC (Commander-in-Chief's) Guard (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3rd_US_Infantry_Regiment_%28The_Old_Guard%29#4th_Battalion) conducts a squad live fire exercise at range 25 at Fort A.P. Hill, Va. Jan. 5, 2013.

I'v just read the wiki link about the 3rd infantry reg, they have for the most ceremonial and memorial roles, but I'm surprised to see that they (2nd Battalion) took part in recent Irak/Astan fights, can somenone give more info about this?
