Captain Doubleday and General Mundy briefed reporters on issues relating to the U.S. military, including the recent flap

over a U.S. Marine Corps policy concerning Marines and marriage. The

policy, withdrawn earlier in the week by Secretary of Defense Les

policy in the former Yugoslavia and answered reporters' questions. close
