How on earth did she get her face paint in digital pattern? I've never seen the stuff go on well enough to get anything but a blob of garbage.

The facial mask cam makes an interesting contrast to the hunter orange helmet cover.

First Female Enlisted Soldier Earns Army Ranger Tab

Staff Sgt. Amanda F. Kelley's family member pins on her Ranger tab during a graduation ceremony for Ranger Class 08-18 at Fort Benning, Ga., Aug. 31, 2018. (U.S. Army/Patrick A. Albright)

 

U.S. Army staff sergeant is the first female enlisted soldier to graduate from Ranger School, joining a small group of women to earn the coveted Ranger Tab.

Staff Sgt. Amanda Kelley of the 1st Armored Division became the 13th woman to successfully complete the grueling 62-day small-unit leadership course. The graduation ceremony was held Friday at Fort Benning, Georgia, Megan Reed, a spokeswoman for Training and Doctrine Command told Military.com.

Kelley is a 29-year-old electronic warfare technician with the 1st A.D.’s Combat Aviation Brigade at Fort Bliss, Texas, according to Lt. Col. Crystal Boring, a spokeswoman with the 1st A.D.

Newsweek first reported on this story.

Benning released few details on Kelley’s graduation from the course; officials did not say whether it was her first attempt or when she entered the pipeline.

“Ranger Class 08-18 began the last week of July 2018 with 347 students and graduated today with 127 students,” Ben Garrett, spokesman for Benning’s Maneuver Center of Excellence, said in an email.

It’s been just over three years since the Army opened the traditionally all-male course to women in April 2015. Out of the 19 women who originally volunteered for that first coed Ranger class, Capt. Kristen Griest and 1st Lt. Shaye Haver became the first women to earn the distinctive gold and black shoulder tab that August.

13 over three years seems about the right amount of volunteers that are physically capable of completing the grueling Ranger Course. I've always said that there are a small percentage of women tha could make it. When you start seeing the usual suspects raise a hue and cry about the fact that far fewer women complete th course than men, then we'll really have a problem.

On the other hand, and this applies to men or women, why are we wasting a Ranger slot on an electronic warfare specialist in a combat aviation brigade. There is next to zero chance that they will ever lead a squad or platoon small unit infantry mission, and if they are, we're wasting their highly specialized MOS skills. Until every 11B, 13F, 19D, 18-series and corresponding officers have a slot, spending a slot on an electronic warfare tech from outside the Ranger Regiment is idiocy.

I duspect a bit of tall poppy syndrome more than outright sexism. Being first means she was being watched more closely. Cant get away with nothin'.

"Cruz, 26, eventually married the person, who was a lower-ranking Marine in her unit, according The New York Times."

That's called 'falling in love', not fraternisation, isn't it? And its only a mistake if the two get divorced. Anyway, I whish the two many happy years.

I was idly scrolling through the "I'm deployed" portrait series on the Bundeswehr website and found a couple female vehicle commanders/drivers of Fuchs variants; an E-7 named as Anna F. in charge of a Hummel ECM vehicle and an E-5 named as Jacqueline D. driving an ambulance, both in Mali. Also an E-6 named as Sophia E. commanding an ambulance variant in Afghanistan. Bonus pictures of a logistics E-4 named as Anne S. driving an Eagle and a Luftwaffe security E-3 named as Maralena S. with some Dingos, also in Mali.
