The Army's Ranger headquarters in Fort Benning, Georgia, says the women and 94 men passed the tough 62-day course that tests their ability to overcome fatigue, hunger and stress during combat operations.
While completing the leadership course lets the two women wear the coveted Ranger black-and-gold tab, it does not let them become members of the Ranger regiment. Neither woman has been identified by the military.
Thought I read somewhere there is another course to actually enter a Ranger regiment... Could be wrong...
I have no issues with women in combat if they meet the same qualifications a man meets.
