The move comes after California judge Virginia Phillips ruled last week that the policy — which had previously seen openly gay soldiers kicked out of the US armed services — was illegal, and ordered a global injunction to halt it.

Women were raped on recruiting office couches, assaulted in government cars and groped en route to entrance exams. A six-month Associated Press investigation found that more than 80 military recruiters were disciplined last year for sexual misconduct with potential enlistees.
