U.S. Forces Command CSM Michael Grinston on inadequate training.
First Female Army Ranger School Grads
CPT Kristen Griest and 1LT Shaye Haver, the first female graduates of the Army Ranger School, discuss what it's like to be part of history. Ranger School is the Army’s premier small unit tactics and leadership school. The 62-day course pushes Ranger students to their mental and physical limits by forcing them to operate on minimal food and sleep. 77,000 Soldiers have earned the Ranger Tab since the school opened in 1952. In 2014, 4057 students attempted the course; 1609 earned the Ranger Tab. All men and women who attend Ranger School have met the exact same standards.
