A female Marine will get a second crack at Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command in January.
In September, the Marine corporal completed the first phase of MARSOC training but she did not score high enough to advance further, said command spokesman Maj. Nick Mannweiler. She is the second female Marine to attempt the training since all military occupational specialties were opened to women.
Marines are allowed up to three attempts to complete the assessment and selection phase of MARSOC training, Mannweiler said. The assessment and selection process is divided into phase one, which lasts 19 days, and phase two, which lasts 21 days.
