Nine times each year, the best young combat engineers and soldiers are selected by their commands to attend the 28-day Sapper Leader Course, widely regarded as one of the Army's toughest schools. Since the Army in mid-May allowed female soldiers to serve in combat support jobs below the brigade level, a few women have undertaken the course.

National Guard Staff Sgt. Anthony Hughes acknowledged that the men watched the women at first, but the women proved themselves.
