A woman will join the Green Berets after she successfully completed Army Special Forces training, a first for the U.S. military.
The soldier graduated on Thursday in a ceremony for the Special Forces Qualification Course, U.S. Army Special Operations Command confirmed in a statement.
“From here, you will go forward and join the storied formation of the Green Berets where you will do what you are trained to do: challenge assumptions, break down barriers, smash through stereotypes, innovate and achieve the impossible,” command head Lt. Gen. Fran Beaudette said during the ceremony.
The woman’s name was not released due to the sensitive nature of missions that are handled by the Green Berets.
