Marine Corps Times Fails to Mention that one Woman Actually Made it Through the “Endurance Test During the Latest Rotation.

“The two women and Pace were among 18 out of 79 Marines who failed the first day. Six were pulled out by instructors because they fell too far behind to finish in time, including one woman. Five men asked to drop out. An additional seven made it through the whole course but failed to score high enough to pass — including the other woman.” Marine Corps Times

Hmmm…a female Marine (otherwise known as a Marine) actually made it through the entire “Initial Combat Endurance Test”; she failed to earn enough points, but she made it through. Something the Marine Corps Times failed to mention. It is only a matter of time. This is first year women have been allowed to attend, so I would say that just making it through that Initial Endurance Test is a sign of things to come.
