A female soldier has made it through the Army's Special Forces selection

•, By: Meghann Myers

Several women have attempted the 24-day program, part of the Special Forces Qualification Course, since then, but none have made it to the next round.

"Recently, a female successfully completed Special Forces Assessment and Selection and was selected to attend the Special Forces Qualification Course," Lt. Col. Loren Bymer told Army Times. "We're proud of all the candidates who attended and were selected to continue into the qualification course in hopes of earning their Green Beret."

USASOC declined to provide the soldier's rank or her current military occupational specialty.

"It is our policy to not release the names of our service members because Special Forces soldiers perform discrete missions upon graduation," Bymer said.

In general, Special Forces candidates take a break from training after SFAS before moving on to the next step of the Q course. Captains might attend their designated career course, while specialists would attend the Basic Leader Course, in anticipation of a promotion to sergeant upon completing qualification.
