1st 3 women Marines graduate from infantry course

CAMP GEIGER, N.C. (AP) -- Three Marines have become the first women ever to graduate from the Corps' tough enlisted infantry training school in North Carolina. Marine Corps spokeswoman Capt. Geraldine Carey says the three completed the rigorous 59-day course at Camp Geiger near Camp LeJeune and participated in a Thursday ceremony. Carey says the women met the same test standards as the men in the class.

The course includes a grueling 12-mile march with an 80-pound pack as well as a variety of combat fitness tests. Carey identified the women as 18-year-old Private 1st Class Julia Carroll of Idaho Falls, Idaho; 25-year-old Private 1st Class Cristina Fuentes Monternegro of Coral Springs, Fla., and 19-year-old Private 1st Class Katie Gorz of St. Paul, Minnesota.
