Lisa Jaster Earning the Tab (Part 1)
Army Ranger and leadership and peak performance expert, Lisa Jaster, shares an inside look at her journey to becoming one of three women to graduate from the first integrated US Army Ranger program.
In this inspiring video, Lisa takes you through her personal story and family life prior to graduating Ranger School, touching on themes of commitment, perseverance, and leadership. It is a moving story about becoming a better leader, serving others, and, above all, understanding that only you can decide what you are capable of achieving.
Army Major Lisa Jaster is a soldier, an engineer, a wife and mother, and a trailblazer. One of only three women to graduate from the first integrated United States Army Ranger program—one of the most difficult combat training courses in the world—Lisa was the first female Army Reserve officer to become a Ranger. She completed the training, which 36% of male and female students fail within the first four days, after refusing to succumb to exhaustion and repeatedly “recycling” through, or retrying, several phases of the multi-locational course. Lisa endured the training, which takes a minimum of 61 days and includes up to 20 hours of training per day alongside a strict diet, for a grueling six months. She graduated at age 37, while the average trainee age is 23.
