Two women are making history as the first female special operations candidates in the Navy.  CNN reports that one of the women hopes to become an elite Navy SEAL and the other wants to join the Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewman program.  Candidates still have to undergo extensive training and physical testing before they can succeed.  Only about a fifth to a quarter of candidates make it through SEAL training.  They’ve all been men but the positions were opened up to women in early 2016.  No women had applied until now.
