The 75th Ranger Regiment is the US Army’s most advanced infantry fighting force that doubles as a special operations force. The Rangers specialize in joint special operations raids and joint forcible entry operations.
On a recent deployment to Afghanistan, Rangers killed almost 2,000 insurgents while conducting nearly 200 combat operations. On that deployment, soldiers of 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment earned several awards, including a Silver Star, eight Bronze Stars (V), five Joint Service Commendation Medals (V), and three Purple Hearts. That’s some serious ass-whooping.
