Female soldier becomes the FIRST to join the Green Berets--


A female soldier on Thursday became the first to join the Green Berets since the Pentagon allowed women to enter combat jobs in 2016

The woman, who was not identified under military privacy rules, graduated after completing the Armed Special Forces qualification course at Fort Bragg

The female soldier, a member of the National Guard, completed the course along with 400 other service members

The highly trained commandos usually work in 12-person teams and are often used for specialized combat and counterterrorism operations 

There are currently more than 6,700 Green Berets, who the US also relies upon to train other nations' forces in battle skills
