Early life and education
Haver is from Copperas Cove, Texas. In 2008, she graduated from high school in Texas, where she was a cross country runner and soccer player.
Haver graduated from the United States Military Academy in 2012.
Haver followed in her father’s footsteps and became a pilot of attack helicopters. Her father also served as a career Army aviator who flew Apaches.
Haver used to serve as an Apache Attack Helicopter pilot in an aviation brigade. She is one of the two first women, along with Kristen Marie Griest, to have been earned a Ranger tab, from the US Army Ranger School, which occurred on 21 August 2015. Haver was among a group of 20 women who qualified to attend the first gender-integrated Ranger School, which began 20 April 2015. Haver received a certificate of completion and was awarded and authorized to wear the Ranger Tab.
Haver and Griest both said that they felt extra pressure to succeed because they wanted to prove that women can endure the same stress and pressure that men do when training. Since questions arose about the legitimacy of the program, many commanders and generals have spoken out in support of the women. Major General Scott Miller, the commanding general of the U.S. Army Maneuver Center of Excellence at Fort Benning, said he vowed before the program began that there “would be no change to the standards—and there weren’t."
