Woman Qualifies For Special Forces Training, Could Be The First Female Green Beret

For the first time since women have been allowed to apply, a woman has passed the initial Special Forces Assessment and Selection process, placing her on the path to become the first female Green Beret.

The Army opened special operations jobs to women in 2016 but only one has passed the first stage, a 24-day program designed to push soldiers to the brink of mental and physical exhaustion.
