Always Forward: Fort Bragg Soldier Becomes First Female to Graduate from Special Forces Qualification Course

FORT BRAGG – There was no woke understanding of ‘equity’ involved.

U.S. Army Special Operations Command officials at Fort Bragg U.S. Army Base announced that each and every one of the graduates from this elite class demonstrated the ability to meet the baseline standards and competencies for admission to U.S. Special Forces.

For the first time, there was a woman among the soldiers getting her Green Beret and Special Forces tab at the graduation ceremony held on Thursday.

From the Fayetteville Observer:

“[…] “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,” [Lt. Gen. Fran Beaudette, USASOC commander] said. “Thankfully, after today, our Green Beret men and women will forever stand in the hearts of free people everywhere.”

USASOC does not release the names of service members in training or assigned to its units due to unique missions assigned upon graduation, according to the statement.

The Associated Press reported that the woman is one of three female soldiers who have been going through the qualification course. Defense officials, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss personnel matters, told the news service that she is a member of the National Guard.

The soldier likely will be assigned to a Special Forces Operational Detachment-Alpha, or A-team. Each team has 12 soldiers with varied specialties. […]”

The special forces selection process is one of the most grueling physical and mental challenges on the planet, naturally producing special fighting forces that are feared by the enemies of freedom from around the globe.

Many areas that U.S. Special Forces are engaged in happen to by Islamic terrorist hot spots in which women are subjugated to a life of oppression under strict sharia law. Imagine an Islamist jihadi, intent upon reforming an Islamic Caliphate replete with the sex-slave trafficking of young girls, realizing the American soldier he foolishly engaged, the one bearing down on him with the skill and tact of an elite warrior inching closer to confidently eliminating him as a threat, is an American woman.

Congratulations to all the soldiers earning their Green Beret this week; God Bless you and you families; and, thank you for your service.
