In July of this year, three female applicants volunteered to apply for some of the toughest military training out there. Two females applied to enter Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewman program (they drive boats/small craft-they are not seals) and one female entered the SEAL officer selection and is required to got through BUDS just like anyone else. This is the same for Marine Corps Recon indoctrination, officers go through with enlisted.
To date, only one enlisted female remains in the Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewman program as the other enlisted female has been dismissed as has the female applying for the SEALs.
Good on em for having the intestinal fortitude for even applying, however as we have discussed before HERE, it’s not a cake walk and unless standards are lowered, it will be very tough and that’s just basic training, then comes the really hard stuff. You have to remember, that BUDs, Ranger School, Recon indoc, is just the tip of the iceberg. The hard stuff begins when you hit the fleet.
It is interesting to note that the Navy has implemented a entire female instructor cadre in the result if one of these initial female volunteers makes it through. What? Why? This is a slide of hand behind the scenes from the touchy feely people that want to make sure everything is “ok” if one of these females makes it through. Will they do the same if a transgender makes it through SEALs training?
This post isn’t about jumping up and down and going “ha ha” those ladies failed” it’s about basic results that are continueing to point to the basic fact that, unless standards are lowered, it is very diffulcult for a female to achieve this training and remember, that it’s only the beginning of years of very tough training and if you are employed into combat, you will be in the worst of worst places.
