The US Navy has graduated its first Black female fighter pilot, Lt. j.g. Madeline Swegle, the service said.
“Very proud of LTJG Swegle,” the Vice Chief of Information Rear Adm. Paula Dunn wrote. “Go forth and kick butt.”
Swegle completed the final flight of the Tactical Air (Strike) training program a few days ago and is set to receive her wings of gold later this month.
