Army Allows Women Into Ranger Course

(WLNS) – For the very first time the Army says it will allow as many as 60 women to participate in the next Ranger course.

Army officials approved the change that would allow women in the course beginning in late April.

However, while completing the leadership course would let women wear the coveted Ranger tab, it does not let them become members of the ranger unit.

Right now only men can be in the 75th Ranger Regiment.

Joining the Regiment requires additional schooling that officials say is physically, emotionally and mentally challenging.
