In all fairness, tons of super tough men wash out of the Navy SEAL pipeline.
My question: will the navy be forced to lower the bar so that they get a woman thru? After all, the current military is all about the social experiment and not about breaking things and killing people. Via Military.com:
The woman on track to become the first female Navy SEAL officer has exited the training pipeline, multiple Naval Special Warfare Command sources have confirmed to Task & Purpose.
The female midshipman, an ROTC junior at an unnamed U.S. college, was the elite SEAL Officer Assessment and Selection (SOAS) program’s first female entrant … “No women have entered the full training pipeline just yet,” a Navy official [said]. “She didn’t make it to BUD/S.”
The entrant, one of a handful of female applicants … appears to have exited the training pipeline after completing just half of the command’s screening evaluations.
The first female officer candidate represented a significant milestone for a service branch that had, until the 2015 Pentagon guidance, excluded women from the SEALs and SWCC community.
