Ft. Benning releases video of integrated Ranger training

FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) - We're getting our first look inside the integrated Ranger training course at Fort Benning

In the attached video, you can see female recruits training alongside male recruits during the Ranger Course Assessment.

Eight women and 184 men are currently attempting to earn the coveted Ranger tab.

The Army announced in January it would allow women to attempt to complete the course for the first time.

The decision is part of a wider effort to determine whether and how to open combat arms jobs to women.
