Ranger From Nashville

Post by NashvilleRanger »

Hello,

My name is Pete. I graduated the Ohio State University in 1995 and was commissioned as a 2LT in the infantry. A short while after IOBC in Benning, I attended the US Army Ranger School in October 1995. I first started in class 02-96, but after a brief hiatus in the Gulag in Florida, graduated 03-96.

My first duty station was with the 6th ID (later reflagged to the 172nd SIB) in USARAK at Fort Wainright, AK, where I was a line Platoon Leader and then Heavy Weapons Platoon Leader for the 2/1 Infantry battalion (Cold Steel). After a promotion to 1LT, I was promoted to the Brigade HHC executive officer for the 172nd Infantry Brigade (Separate). Although I never served within a ranger battalion, I worked with some of the finest young men in the Army. After serving my country, I separated from Active Duty (remaining in the reservers for an additional 5 years) and joined law enforcement for the next seven years.

I am now in a civilian capacity practicing computer forensics (my two mile run time has unfortunately dramatically declined). I miss the military and the comraderie (and the PT), and am excited to have found this website. I thank those of you that have served your country, and those of you that put your lives on the line every day to keep my family safe. I am extremely grateful for everything you do.

Rangers Lead the Way!

I'll go out on a limb here and assume that with all them Officer smarts, this cat is going to understand whatever it was you just said.

Goddamn Kevin, all that college is making you confusing.
