We don’t yet know their names, but what they just did is incredible. They are two female soldiers among the 96 soldiers who will graduate as Rangers at Fort Benning, Georgia. That’s 96 graduating… there were 400 soldiers who started the course. The training course is extremely harsh, with little food or sleep, and difficult physical tests in harsh conditions. More than 75% failed out. It’s just that tough a course, but that’s also what makes soldiers so proud to pass it.
