PRESS RELEASE: U.S. Army Ranger killed in single tactical vehicle accident

FORT BENNING, GA -- A U.S. Army Ranger assigned to 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment at Fort Benning, GA, was killed in a single tactical vehicle accident on 07 September 2018.

1LT Connor Bednarzyk, 25, was an Infantry Officer assigned as the Platoon Leader of the Distribution Platoon, Echo Company, 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment.
