Ranger School Leaders: Last Three Females Have Earned Another Chance

Post #1 by optimusprime » June 14th, 2015, 7:28 am

It's down to three now -- three female soldiers, out of an original 19, that refuse to give up their dream of earning the coveted Army Ranger Tab.

The one female major and two female first lieutenants failed at two attempts to make it through the first phase of U.S. Army Ranger School, but the trio has still earned the respect of the gatekeepers of this grueling, two-month infantry course.

The female soldiers had been at it for 29 days when the two top leaders at Ranger School offered them a choice - start over from day one with a new class or go home.

All three agreed to start over on June 22.

"Anybody that takes a day-one recycle -- be it a male or female soldier -- it displays an incredible amount of grit and determination; they want to earn the Ranger Tab," Col. David G. Fivecoat, commander of the Airborne and Ranger Training Brigade, told Military.com during a June 5 interview.

Always good to hear patriotism isn't dead in America. Thanks, OP! :-bd
There's nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be; it's easy.
