As part of Ranger Class 08-15 at Fort Benning, Georgia, 1st Lieutenant Shaye Haver was one of the first two women to ever earn her Ranger tab. With a 58% overall failure rate, the Ranger School is considered as one of the military's most physically and demanding courses.
Haver came from Copperas Cove, Texas, and graduated from the US Military Academy at West Point in 2012. She is an AH-64 Apache pilot stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado. With 18 other women, she began Ranger training in spring 2015 as part of the first gender-integrated class. Although Haver had failed the course, her good performance in some phases of the course allowed her to restart the course and ultimately complete it. Haver says that she plans to continue as a pilot not that she has completed the course.
