“The difficulty is definitely worth the reward,” 1st Lt. Shaye Haver said of her graduation from Ranger School.

Last year, Haver became one of three women to graduate from the elite military school–a first in U.S. military history. Her accomplishment was recognized by Fort Carson Wednesday.

Haver is a member of the 4th Infantry Division.

Also recognized Wednesday was Staff Sgt. Michael Calderon, who not only graduated from Ranger School last summer with honors, but was the top graduate in the course.
