I pee on your shoe

Women in Iraq

I have an Army character who is an expert in tracking and wilderness/desert survival.  The problem is my character is a woman so (it's my understanding) she can't be a member of any special forces or Combat Search and Rescue.  The backstory is that she was stationed somewhere in the mountains of Kurdistan before a medical discharge, so I can have her use these skills.

My question is, then, what could she be?  It doesn't have to be Army, it just has to be a position that will allow the military to use her -- maybe to train other soldiers or to engage in some SAR. 

Thanks.
