Fort Benning, Georgia (Friday April 30, 2010) The Ranger Tab was awarded to 177 graduates of Ranger Class 5-10 today.
To recognize outstanding achievement during the Ranger Course, the following awards were presented:
RALPH PUCKETT AWARD (Officer Honor Graduate) - 2LT Jonathan Siskey
GLENN M. HALL AWARD (Enlisted Honor Graduate) - SSG Steven Hurt
COLONEL Robert A. “Tex” Turner Officer Leadership Award - 2LT Kyle Payne
SGM Robert Spenser Enlisted Leadership Award - SSG Steven Hurt
Guest speaker was retired CSM Doug Greenway. He was dressed in the regular BDU with no insignia, tabs or patches. Near the end of the Rangers in Action demonstration, Greenway got up as though he is going to make a pit stop before he speaks. Surprise! The Ranger who does the slide for life at the end of the demonstration was GREENWAY!!! He came back to the stands soaking wet and gave the graduation speech. Everyone was impressed!
