Sexual assault prevention and response; we hear it every April. Sometimes this annual training seems redundant, yet sexual assaults still happens within the United States military. Sexual assault isn’t unique to the military, it’s a problem in the civilian world as well. Because of this, the ladies of Pink Gloves Boxing Cheyenne joined military units throughout Wyoming as well as the Cheyenne community in taking a stand against sexual assault by rucking in the recent Sexual Assault Prevention and Response 5K run, ruck and walk event held in downtown Cheyenne.

I pulled up to the parking lot of the Torrington police station which is about eighty miles northeast of Cheyenne near the Nebraska border. It is an understated brown building which shares its location with city hall. Over the glass doors in block letters reads “police station.” Officer Rebekah Miller is waiting for me in front of the doors to the station. She is wearing a hat with the Torrington police patch above the brim, which slightly shades her eyes. Her black uniform adorns her patrolman shield, Torrington police patch, radio and utility belt which carries her weapon and handcuffs. It is a stark contrast to the Airman battle uniform she wears on the weekend when she is working as a command post specialist. We exchange greetings and enter the building as she starts an informal tour of her department.

In 1869, Wyoming became the first state to grant women the right to vote. More than a century later, the Equality State continues to be a trendsetter for women – it houses Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 297th Infantry, which employed the first female infantry soldier in the country. Today, of the 2,702 airmen and soldiers serving in the Wyoming National Guard, approximately 1 in 5 are women. They fall into the rank spectrum from slick-sleeved airmen and empty-chested privates, to brigadier generals. These women, officer and enlisted, serve as doctors, lawyers, pilots, mechanics, and yes, even infantry.
