Candidate To Be First Female Navy SEAL Officer Quits After A Week

But with the strides made by women in uniform, there have also been setbacks. It's not the same program as the more rigorous Navy SEAL pipeline.

The program is the first in-person evaluation of a candidate who desires to become a Navy SEAL officer, and it allows sailors to compete against peers in an equitable training environment. Two women in 2015 graduated from the Army's grueling Ranger course. She was the only woman in the pipeline.

The midshipman, who was identified by Military.com in July as a ROTC junior at an unnamed USA college, was the first female to enter the elite SEAL Officer Assessment and Selection (SOAS) program since Ashton Carter announced the Department of Defense (DoD) was lifting restrictions on female applicants for combat and special operations roles in 2016. (NSW public affairs officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment). Graduates of the SEAL Officer Assessment & Selection course earn the chance to be considered in a second stage process involving a selection panel.

According to the AP, the three-week program in Coronado, California, tests physical and psychological strength, water competency and leadership skills.

That basic training, which lasts six months, is so arduous that 75 percent of candidates drop out by the end of the first month. "But both are very hard to complete and have high dropout rates".

That decision was formal recognition of the thousands of female servicewomen who fought in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars in recent years, including those who were killed or wounded. Those in special operations are among the most demanding jobs in the military.

The successes and failures of women in the military's most taxing units is part of a steady march toward integration of the country's armed services.

"Carter's move has proven controversial with critics who question whether full gender integration could weaken the military or cause unnecessary distractions".

Further stoking the debate, in September 2015, a Marine Corps study created to compare how men and women do in combat found that female service members were injured twice as often as their male counterparts, fired their infantry weapons with less accuracy and were not as good at removing wounded troops from the battlefield.

There are no other women in the SEAL pipeline, a Naval Special Warfare official said Friday. She has started the various evaluations and standard Navy training.
