The Army announced Jan. 15 that female Soldiers will be allowed, for the first time, to attend the Army’s Ranger Course and possibly earn the coveted Ranger tab.
After 25 years as a Soldier and three years as the command sergeant major of U.S. Army Training and Doctrine command, the Army still managed to surprise Command Sgt. Maj. Daniel A. Dailey last month when its chief of staff, Gen. Raymond T. Odierno, told Dailey he had been chosen to become the 15th sergeant major of the Army. Dailey’s appointment to replace the office’s incumbent, Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond F. Chandler III, was announced Monday and is expected to take effect at the end of January with Chandler’s retirement.
FORT EUSTIS, Va. (Nov. 14, 2014) — The U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command
has established a professional development program for its civilians at Fort Eustis that could be replicated across the Army.
The program aims to increase civilians’ knowledge of Army doctrine and initiatives, while encouraging excellence, professional development and resiliency.
Fort Benning officials cleared a hurdle last week with the selection of 31 female soldiers to serve as observers and advisers for a possible one-time Ranger School Assessment that would include female Ranger candidates training alongside male soldiers.
A decision on whether to move forward with the integrated assessment is expected in January.
