The Army announced Monday night two women are set to graduate from U.S. Army Ranger school, the first ever to complete the vigorous 62-day course.
Army Secretary John McHugh said in a statement, “Congratulations to all of our new Rangers.
Each Ranger School graduate has shown the physical and mental toughness to successfully lead organizations at any level.”
He added, “We owe soldiers the opportunity to serve successfully in any position where they are qualified and capable, and we continue to look for ways to select, train, and retain the best Soldiers to meet our nation’s needs.”
