Slide12-300x300Major Lisa Jaster, 37, is the third female ever to complete the US Army Ranger school.

The Army announced on Oct. 12 that she has completed the course.

She joins Capt. Kristen Griest, 26, and 1st Lt. Shaye Haver, 25, who earned the Ranger tab on Aug. 21.

An engineer and mother of two, Lisa is also a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blue belt.

Her Professor at Gracie Barra Westchase, near Houston, Texas, is Ulpiano Malachias.

He talks proudly about her pupil:

“She trains for almost two years now. By the way, everyone in her family also train with us. Her husband is a purple belt. Her two sons are true medal collectors at tournaments.”

Lisa talked about her achievement to the Washington Post:

“Once you get in the field and start training, shoulder to shoulder, gender stops mattering very quickly. All I had to do was look at that picture (of her kids) and remember I didn’t come to Ranger School just to get a piece of cloth on my shoulder. I wanted to do something. I wanted to better myself as a leader and I wanted to help the Army in this endeavor.”

Here’s the video of Lisa on her Army Ranger school graduation day.
