1/75 Wounded

Received two 1/75 Rangers at SAMMC today.
One is pretty messed up and will be here a while.
The other has a hell of a lot of stitches but will RTD shortly.

We will take care of them and their families and make sure they are not alone.

They will see a lot of me.

ST,
Thank you for the update and taking care of the studs.
If by any chance they need anything beyond medical care, please advise? I'll promise a "care package" if needed (please don't check it too close, there will be "dip" hidden amongst the other goodies)

I don't really care where they are from. If they come here wounded I go and see them. Make sure their families, etc are ok so they can concentrate on healing. I stay with them through their journey here until they leave.

I dont have the link but a google article was talking about a Savannah Resteraunt raising money for 1 of the Rangers that went to Ft.Sam.

Keep up the good fight!

Thanks for taking care of all the soldiers out there.

You should be able to contact the 75th's Family Readiness Officer or a senior SNCO that can ship him whatever he may need/want. I would be surprised if a NCO and/or Officer from the Bn wasn't there to visit him shortly. SOCOM units are pretty good at making sure their WIA's are taken care of.

Back to my lane.
