Now that the US military is allowing women into its elite units, there's an effort to augment the Green Beret (male) statue at Ft. Bragg with a female version next to it. The latter would be similar in design and oriented to face the former. It would capture the current uniform and individual weapon, be constructed of space age polymers and done in full color.

The current statue was privately funded and so too must be any new statue. They decided to sell miniatures (statuettes) of the proposed design to raise the money and test marketed pre-production samples. Those didn't go over well. Perhaps it was because there aren't many female Green Berets yet. They tweaked the final design for the statue; however, and now the miniatures are selling like hotcakes: Link
