For the first time in history, a female has made it through the first phase of becoming a member of one of the most elite, an Army Special Forces soldier.
When the Army opened its special operations jobs to women in 2016, few people thought women would attempt these types of jobs, let alone qualify for them. Now, for the first time, a woman has both entered and passes the selection process, the first step in becoming a Green Beret.
This chick made it through the 24-day program, a program many fail out of. Yes, we know she still has a long way to go, but that doesn’t mean her current accomplishment should go unnoticed.
Her name can’t be disclosed because of the nature of work she’d be doing if she makes it through the Q course, but we’re wishing you the best of luck during your next year in the Special Forces Qualification Course.
