          The Army asked and commercial gunmakers answered. There are now 10 submachine guns that have been submitted to fulfill an Army request.

          The aim of the Army’s request for information is not to outfit every soldier with a subgun but to have an option for soldiers who might need this type of weapon for personal protection and specific mission sets.


          It's official: Soldiers will now receive up to 12 weeks of maternity leave after giving birth. That's more than double the Army's previous policy, which gave female soldiers six weeks of post-pregnancy convalescent leave.

          What remains unchanged are how much time new mothers have before they are deployable again and the Army's rules for new fathers. New mothers are still non-deployable for up to six months.
