In the USA, there is a school. This school is for soldiers. It offers special training. The training takes 62 days. It is very difficult. If you finish the training, you become a ranger.

Nineteen women and 381 men begin the training. Only 94 men and two women finish the training. The women become the first women rangers ever. This is an important moment for the school.

The training includes swamp survival. One woman says that this was difficult for her.

Difficult words: offer (to give), swamp (an area where there is a lot of water, mud and plants), survival (surviving – living in a difficult situation).
