Marine Corps integrates male and female platoons during boot camp for the first time (ABC)
For the first time in its history, the Marine Corps will integrate female and male platoons during boot camp.

Unlike the other services, the Marine Corps has not fully integrated women and men during recruit training. Instead, at Recruit Depot Parris Island in South Carolina, the first three battalions are all-male, while the fourth battalion is all-female.

The Navy did this back in the early 90s. I know this because I was in one of the first integrated companies in boot camp.
