An Air Force captain closing in on becoming the first woman to qualify as one of the service’s special tactics operators received no preferential treatment as she advanced in the arduous combat control training pipeline in 2021, the Air Force inspector general found.
In a report released Tuesday, June 7, Air Force Inspector General Lt. Gen. Stephen L. Davis examined much of the woman’s experience in the famously difficult training pipeline, from her entry in 2018 to her abrupt decision to leave the training in early 2021. Davis also examined claims in a 13-point anonymous letter circulated in January in the secretive community with claims of special treatment.
