These two women, who are the 1st to pass the rigorous training of US Army Ranger training, by their own male classmates  were called “studs”.  More than a few women have tried to go through Ranger School, none have passed before these two.  On a personal and professional note, for those who don’t know me, know this, that one of my early mentors professionally was a woman, the VP of Finance a tough as nails boss who was extremely competent and she really helped me professionally with her guidance and advice, I will never be able to pay her back for that.  So in the spirit of paying it forward I’ve always supported the mentoring of women for higher level positions.  Gentlemen, I am going to ask you that you do likewise in my efforts   While I will always for the most competent person, if that person is a woman, do your best to help them be capable enough to fill the future positions.
