U.S. Army Sgt. Maciel Hay, a cavalry scout with 1st Squadron, 91st Cavalry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade, recently made history as first active-duty female Army sniper. Hay points to her positive experience in the Army, underscored by the support she has received from leaders and peers throughout her training.

Not only did she make it through basic training while qualifying as an expert with the M4 assault rifle, she quickly followed that up by graduating from airborne school.
