Men of Extraordinary Strength, Courage and Bravery
The Sua Sponte Foundation commends and thanks them for their dedication and sacrifice for our nation.
The 1st Ranger Battalion is part of the U.S. Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment, a Special Operations force based at Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, GA. Highly-trained warriors who are from locations all across the country perform highly specialize tasks including direct action, airfield seizure, airborne and air assaults, special reconnaissance, personnel recovery and high-value target raids.
From a successful airfield seizure at Torrijos/Tocumen Airfield in Panama in 1989 during Operation Just Cause to rescuing Prisoner of War Private-First-Class Jessica Lynch in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, the Rangers have been instrumental in combat operations around the world. The 75th ranger Regiment has been on continual deployment since 9/11 and they are still successfully destroying and capturing terrorist networks. No other fighting unit has been constantly deployed.
