First Women Soldiers Complete Army Ranger School
EDITOR'S NOTE from FOX NATION:
Talked to a friend of mine who served in the 75th.
While they didn't do it "specifically" for the women in this first qualifying iteration of RTAC and Ranger School that had women candidates they did initiate a change in standards. The land navigation course has had another hour added to it very recently, time standards for road marches have been stretched. The school is going to keep on lowering standards little by little until numbers are met. Congrats to the two officer women who got a tab (and I do mean that). They showed up to do what 90% of the military is afraid to do, and that's commendable. But downgrading our toughest warriors standards to make things look good is not the smart choice.

The Army said Monday evening that two female soldiers have passed the Ranger School, and will become the first women to earn the legendary special-forces credential.
The two women, whom the Pentagon did not immediately name, will join 94 male colleagues at a Friday graduation ceremony at Fort Benning, Georgia.
