    The Royal Thai Army invited U.S. Soldiers to participate in their first all-female Basic Airborne Course conducted by the Special Warfare School at Camp Erawan, Lop Buri, Thailand, July 18 – Aug. 9.  

    Nearly 100 female RTA soldiers from Airborne Class 345 earned their Parachutist Badge after completing four weeks of rigorous training to include four static line jumps, one with combat equipment and one at night.
    The course concluded with an 8k ruck march from the drop zone. 

    1st Sgt. Sarah Meyers, U.S. Army Forward Support Company, 1st Battalion, 1st Special Forces Group (Airborne), served as the U.S. Army Special Operations Forces jumpmaster mentor during the course. Meyers has 15 years of airborne operations experience and is the only female jumpmaster in her battalion.  

    The United States and Thailand have nearly two centuries of diplomatic relations and have been security treaty allies for over 66 years. Our continued, face-to-face exchanges with our allies and partners are a foundation of a our bilateral relationships, and bolster understanding in the region that we are going to be a reliable partner in both good and bad times.
