Tammy Barnett said she figures her new job will be a lot like her old one..
She initially planned to enter the military police, “but infantry is similar,” she told The Army Times. “And they are more on the front lines, like law enforcement here, and I said, ‘that’s what I want to do.’”
Barnett said she planned to celebrate her oath by going fishing with her family.
“I hope that I give them the courage, because I’m a small female,” she told KSLA. “If I can do it, they can do it, too. This could give them the courage to step out of their comfort zone.”
