I’m calling Bullshit!
This staff sergeant is the first enlisted woman to earn a Ranger tab, and she’s not in combat arms
Staff Sgt. Amanda Kelley, 29, is the first enlisted woman to earn her Ranger qualification, according to 1st Armored Division spokeswoman Lt. Col. Crystal Boring.
She was one of 127 students to graduate on Friday, according to Fort Benning spokesman Benjamin Garrett, out of 347 hopefuls who began the training in late July.
Kelley is a Fort Bliss, Texas-based electronic warfare specialist with the 1st Armored Division’s combat aviation brigade, Boring said.
She has previously been stationed in South Korea and deployed to Iraq, according toNewsweek, who first reported on her graduation.
A geek in an aviation slot. Why in Hell did The Powers That Be waste a precious slot in Ranger school for anyone, male or female, like that?
Of course the answer is (did you guess?) to appease the feminists in Congress and to assure them that the military believes in Female Equality.
There has been enough reports on the “remediation steps” taken to ensure the precious darlings get through the course; from actual stools placed in front of high obstacles courses to reduced physical fitness goals. Just don’t take any of these affirmative action dollies into actual war.
