Background Information about
the U.S. Army’s Cultural Support Teams
Some readers may wonder whether Raquel’s military experience—serving on the front lines of combat alongside a special operations team—is realistic. After all, until recent policy changes, the United States military didn’t allow servicewomen into combat situations.
However, female soldiers with special combat training were attached to those special operations units, skirting the letter of the law. From 2011 through 2014, approximately 200 female soldiers completed the rigorous Cultural Support Team training and embedded with U.S. special operation forces.
These women served, risked their lives, and—yes, in some cases—died. Yet even most in the U.S. Army have never heard of the CST program, so to learn more, here’s some of my research sources:
The Women of the Army Rangers’ Cultural Support Teams
Legality of the CST program and coordination with the special operations teams:
“These soldiers…could be there, legally, despite the ban on women in ground combat because they were “attached” to special operations teams, just not “assigned” to them. … “Those guys are your brothers…””
Inside the military program that put women in combat
Focus on CST member 1st Lt. Ashley White:
“White was among her own. These were women who did CrossFit twice a day; whose favorite movies were “G.I. Jane” and “Black Hawk Down”; whose highest compliment was to regard a fellow female competitor as “a beast.””
Rachel Washburn: An American Hero
The story of this 1st Lt. is how I first heard about the CST program:
“Eagles cheerleader Rachel Washburn…traded in her midnight green Vera Wang-designed cheerleader uniform for army fatigues.”
