First female soldier to try the Green Berets washes out on physical

Whether she failed or quit is not disclosed, but she can try the grueling test again


The first female soldier to ever attempt Green Beret special forces training has washed out of the course.

She failed this week to complete the requirements of U.S. Army Special Forces Assessment and Selection (SFAS), The Washington Times reports.

The unnamed female soldier began her training on Sept. 2 after reporting to Fort Bragg, N.C. She passed the physical fitness portion of the test and managed to make it through half of the 21-day course.

But trouble came during the land navigation portion of the course. It’s unclear whether she voluntarily dropped out, whether she had to withdraw due to medical issues or whether she just simply failed to meet basic standards.

The Army refused to confirm or deny to The Washington Times that an enlisted female soldier was taking part in SFAS.
