Newcom is well trained, but unprepared for her first exposure to the effects of high velocity metal on human beings.

So she was famous but never saw real combat?

Her fame, such as it is, isn’t from combat prowess - it’s from media coverage from when she sued to get into an all male prep school, and then became one of the first female combat arms officers. By that time her cause had been picked by various progressive lobbying organizations that agitated on her behalf to get the Army to actually assign her a combat role - something she wanted but would have had no power to make happen on her own. She got more famous when the anti progressive groups started using her as an example of feminism gone too far, so in conservative circles she has notoriety rather than fame. Captain Maichrowitz called her a “political celebrity.” She’s become a poster child, and a lightning rod for controversy.

The degree to which she wants any of that attention or deliberately tried to take advantage of it isn’t really addressed in the story, but the rest of it will come out by and by.

When she says she “just wants to do her job,” though, she’s telling the truth - that much I’m sure of!

I guess everyone goes through an "initiation" then, when it comes down to it.
