The first woman to enter training to become a tactical air control party airman left shortly thereafter due to an injury, the Air Force said.

The active-duty enlisted airman, who was not identified by the Air Force, in July became the first female airman to start the TACP Preparatory Course at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, since the military opened up all remaining male-only combat jobs to women.

But in an email response Tuesday to an Air Force Times inquiry, Air Education and Training Command spokeswoman Marilyn Holliday said the airman was injured during training July 19.
