    Women military personnel receiving instruction

    Although they were not subject to compulsory service and did not serve in combat-related positions, women had been recruited at both officer and enlisted levels. Most of the female service personnel occupied administrative or secretarial positions or served in communications units. Women also were employed as doctors and nurses in military hospitals. In 1989 the highest ranking woman, a colonel, was in the Medical Corps. The facilities formerly occupied by the Jordanian Military Academy near Az Zarqa had been converted to a training school for women soldiers.
