Rangers kill or capture 1,900 terrorists in a single deployment

by Stavros Atlamazoglou · March 12, 2019

According to an Army press release, 17 Rangers serving with the 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment received military awards last week for their actions during the unit’s latest combat deployment to Afghanistan. The unit, which has deployed an amazing 22 times during the Global War on Terror, is credited with an astounding 1,900 killed or captured enemy in the span of 198 combat operations.

During the March 8th awards ceremony, which took place at the unit’s base at Hunter Army Airfield, Georgia, Army Maj. Gen. Mark Schwartz, the deputy commanding general of the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), stated: “We are here to recognize extraordinary Rangers who have gone above and beyond what was expected of them. It is truly an honor to serve with men like you.”
“A society does not ever die ‘from natural causes’, but always dies from suicide or murder – and nearly always from the former….”
