ONLY WOMAN QUITS NAVY SEAL TRAINING
DIEGO» The only woman in SAN the Navy SEAL training pipeline has dropped out, a Navy special warfare official confirmed Friday.
The female midshipman voluntarily decided to not continue in a summer course that’s required of officers who want to be selected for SEAL training, Naval special warfare spokesman, Lt. Cmdr. Mark Walton, told The Associated Press. The Navy has not released the woman’s name, part of a policy against publicly identifying SEALs or candidates for the force.
No other women are in the process required to become a Navy SEAL, Walton said.
Another woman has set her sights on becoming a Special Warfare Combatant Crewman. They often support the SEALs but also conduct missions of their own using state-of-the art, high-performance boats. She has started the long process of going through various evaluations and months of standard Navy training.
