Task and goal explained that the candidate left the training process in the earliest stage.

The failed candidate was reportedly a college junior female Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps midshipman. Mark Walton, a Naval special warfare spokesman, told The Associated Press. It's not the same program as the more rigorous Navy SEAL pipeline.

According to the AP, another woman has set her sights on becoming a Special Warfare Combatant Crewman, another job that recently opened to women.

The midshipman, who was identified by Military.com in July as a ROTC junior at an unnamed US college, was the first female to enter the elite SEAL Officer Assessment and Selection (SOAS) program since Ashton Carter announced the Department of Defense (DoD) was lifting restrictions on female applicants for combat and special operations roles in 2016.

They often support the SEALs but also conduct missions of their own using state-of-the art, high-performance boats. Graduates of the SEAL Officer Assessment & Selection course earn the chance to be considered in a second stage process involving a selection panel. She has started the various evaluations and standard Navy training.

Bank of New York Mellon Corp Cuts Stake in Internap Corporation (INAP)
The value of the investment in Internap Corporation went from $2,000 to $205,000 a change of 10,150.0% quarter over quarter. A number of analysts offered their Estimated Earnings analysis for Internap Corporation (INAP ) for the current quarter.

That decision was formal recognition of the thousands of female servicewomen who fought in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars in recent years, including those who were killed or wounded.

According to the AP, the three-week program in Coronado, California, tests physical and psychological strength, water competency and leadership skills.

The first female Navy SEAL officer candidate voluntarily left training in the initial stages of the process August 2, Task and objective and former Navy psychologist Josh Cotton report. All sailors must go through the program before being selected to take part in SEAL basic training, a six-month program so grueling that 75 percent of candidates drop out by the end of the first month. For example, 18 other women were accepted to the first phase of Army Ranger training with Griest and Have. But even then about 10 percent of military jobs remained closed to women.

The successes and failures of women in the military's most taxing units is part of a steady march toward integration of the country's armed services.
