First Female Airmen Passes US Army Ranger Course

On 30 August 2019, US Air Force 1st Lieutenant Chelsey Hibsch became the first female airman to earn the US Army’s Ranger tab last week.

Hibsch was eligible to take the Army Ranger Course after she attended the Air Force’s Ranger Assessment Course, which is hosted by the Air Force Security Forces Centre and based on the first two weeks of the Army Ranger Course.

US Army Staff Sergeant Amanda Kelly became the first female enlisted soldier to graduate Ranger School in August 2018.
