Female US Army soldier makes history by becoming the first woman to become a Green Beret

In a major achievement for women in the armed forces, a soldier became the US Army's first female Green Beret Thursday, US Army Special Operations Command announced.
The female National Guard soldier, whose name is being withheld due to mission security concerns for special operations troops, graduated from Army Special Forces training, received her Special Forces Tab, and donned her Green Beret at a socially distanced ceremony at Fort Bragg in North Carolina.
Commanding General for US Army Special Operations Command Lt. Gen. Fran Beaudette told the graduating class Thursday that "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."
"Thankfully," the general said, "after today, our Green Beret Men and Women will forever stand in the hearts of free people everywhere."

Who shows no respect for our men and women in uniform, our veterans, or our Gold Star Families.
Shame on Republicans for so frequently pissing on our troops.
And a snappy, respectful salute to the woman who now wears a Green Beret:
For fellow fans of "The Expanse"...perhaps she will go on to become Bobbie Draper's 6th or 7th great-grandmother!
