Air Force Confirms No Women Now in SpecOps Training | Military.com

The U.S. Air Force has confirmed no women are currently in training for any special operations positions.

Confusion over the matter surfaced this week after Defense Secretary Ashton Carter in a commentary published Saturday on the website medium.com suggested a female airman was training to become a tactical air control party, or TACP.

“Interest in the Air Force’s battlefield airmen career fields has increased, with 18 women attempting initial training,” he wrote. “I am proud to say that the first woman has entered training to become a tactical air control party airman.”
