First Female Soldier to Successfully Complete the US Army’s Special Forces Assessment & Selection (SFAS) Course

A female soldier has made history by successfully completing the United States (US) Army’s Special Forces Assessment and Selection (SFAS) course (Folley, 2018).

Although several women have attempted to complete the US Army’s Special Forces (aka Green Beret’s) selection process since January 2016, this female soldier is the first to graduate from SFAS.

The female soldier will now progress on to the Special Forces Qualification Course (SFQC), undertaking approximately 68 weeks of initial and specialist training.
