Women Rangers Recognized by Senate

On September 21, the Senate passed, by unanimous consent, S. Res. 257, a resolution congratulating Captain Kristen Griest and First Lieutenant Shaye Haver on their graduation from Army Ranger School, thus becoming the first women to earn the Army Ranger tab.

The resolution, sponsored by Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), recognizes Army Rangers as an elite combat force “tasked with dismounted infantry, airborne, airmobile, amphibious, and independent squad and platoon-size operations” and notes that “fewer than 45 percent…possess the mental and physical toughness required to earn the highly coveted Ranger tab signifying graduation from the school.”

Among other provisions, the measure “honors and recognizes the patriotism and historic contributions to the United States” by Captain Griest and First Lieutenant Haver and “recognizes that our military and our country are more battle ready as a result of their accomplishments.”
