The first female soldier to participate in the Army’s initial training program for the Green Berets — side-by-side with men — has failed to complete the course this week, The Washington Times has learned.


The enlisted soldier is the first woman to attend the U.S. Army Special Forces Assessment and Selection (SFAS), the first step toward earning the Special Forces tab and the coveted Green Beret. The Times reported in July that two female officer candidates have been accepted to attend an SFAS class that begins in the spring.

The female soldier, whom Army officials did not identify by name, had reported to the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, on Sept. 2. She passed the physical fitness test and the first half of the grueling, 21-day weeding-out process, during which 10 percent to 15 percent of her classmates dropped out.

During this week’s “Land Navigation” phase of the training, she either withdrew voluntarily, was medically dropped or was administratively removed for not meeting standards, three sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity told The Times.

that's too bad :(
I give her props for trying and even making it past the first stageYeah
You know there has been many female spies, assassins, extremely cunning women.

Does anyone find it ironic that the female soldier was able to pass the grueling physical components of the test but then somehow got tripped up on a female behavior stereotype?  She couldn't read a map.

I just hope the first one through earns every single part of it and they don't politic it up.

It's too late for that.  The left has already politicized the military.  Obama will spend the rest of our military budget making sure military portable toilets are transgender friendly,  don't worry.
