The U.S. Army Sniper Course at Fort Benning, Georgia, just had its first female graduate.

The Montana Army National Guard soldier, who isn't being identified by name, completed the rigorous seven-week course on Nov. 5, according to a statement from the Montana National Guard.

"We are extremely proud of this soldier’s achievement and recognize that this is a milestone for not only Montana but the entire National Guard and Army,” Maj. Gen. J. Peter Hronek, adjutant general for Montana, said in the statement.

The soldier joined the Montana National Guard in December 2020. She later completed a 4½-monthslong training at Fort Benning, where leadership recommended her to the sniper course, which tests participants in marksmanship and mission planning.
