American women changed the history | USA
For the first time in the 100-year history of the US Army, women soldiers have crossed the last hurdle of gender discrimination. The 53 recruits of the Women’s Platoon of the Lima Company have completed the most difficult course of the Marine Corps.
For the first time in America, women completed Marine training, slept for three hours, climbed 15 km with a weight of 35 kg.
She has now officially become a Marine after nearly 11 weeks of rigorous training at Camp Pendleton, California. This is the first time that women have completed this course. She started training on 9 February 2021.
20-year-old Abigail Ragland is one of them. She says – millions of eyes were on us. We did not want to fail under any circumstances.
At the same time, 19-year-old Annie says- I never wanted easy challenges in life. I felt the very first day that I was made for the Marines.
Mia O’Hara, 19 years old from Idaho, says that the platoon flag was in my hands in the last climb. The climb was extremely smooth and sharp. Many times felt that this was the last ascent of life, but there was also the belief that someone stood at the end to welcome … and we did it.
In a small ceremony, to put them on the uniform, the eagle, globe, and Anchor pin were given, symbolizing that they are now marines, not trainees.
Collision with male commandos in the most difficult camp
They were trained on par with the male commandos. Extremely tiring training from 3 in the morning tonight. Was able to sleep for only 3 hours. In addition to 15 km of difficult climbing with a weight of 35 kg, maneuvers were also taught in races, dust, mud on pointed peaks.
