Fort Carson female soldier moves forward in Ranger training

March 2, 2015

An Apache helicopter pilot from Colorado's Fort Carson has a chance to become one of the first female Army Rangers.

The Army says that an unidentified first lieutenant from the post was the only one of 17 women to successfully complete the second gender-integrated Ranger Training Assessment Course, which ended last week. She can now participate in the first integrated full Ranger training in April, a grueling two-month combat school that is considered one of the first steps into the military special operations field.
