Whatever happened to boys will be boys and girls will be girls.....?
The Army is asking for female volunteers to possibly attend a Ranger course in the spring.A final decision will be made in January on whether or not to actually conduct the one-time assessment, officials said. Since the Army needs to identify, select and begin training for potential participants, two “All Army Activity” or ALARACT messages are being sent to the field asking for volunteers.
The assessment course would be open to all women in the ranks of specialist to major, if they can meet the physical qualifications and prerequisites.
Female observers would also be needed to serve as advisors to the Airborne and Ranger Training Brigade. Staff sergeants to master sergeants would be eligible, along with chief warrant officers 2 and 3, first lieutenants, captains and majors. The deadline to submit selection packets is Oct. 10. Potential students and observers will be identified in December.
