Helping to ensure that the standards re mained the same for all participants were 17 enlisted and eight commissioned observer-advisors, or O-As, said Sgt. 1st Class Tiffany Easter, an O-A. An additional duty of the O-A was to advise Ranger instructors, she said, since in years past there had never been female students. Some of the advice was on sleep arrangements, latrines, and so on. Becoming an O-A itself was a pretty rigorous process, Easter said. Training included a 12-mile foot march, a combat water survival test, and land navigation. Also, the Army looked for O-As with suitable backgrounds. Anytime Soldiers raise their hands and volunteer for a tough course, I admire that, Miller said. And this is about the toughest course the Army has. The operating force will receive more well-trained Soldiers because of this experience.
