LADY LEATHERNECKS – QUANTICO, VA.: The gear that Lt. Donna Manning is wearing during combat training at the U.S. Marine Corps base at Quantico recently isn’t exactly tailored to measure. The Marine Corps has no intention of putting women on the front lines or even in any of the combat arms specialties – infantry, artillery, tanks or planes. “Everyone equates this training with combat,” says Col. C.D. Dean, Basic School commanding officer, “but I look at it in terms of practical experience in leadership.” 4-29-77
