Built by Rangers for Rangers
We the co-chairs (Rick Barela and Shelia Dudley (RHOF Class of 2019) of the Ranger Memorial Walkway committee are reaching out to the ranger family. We need all brothers, Past and Present, to come together on a project memorializing the sacrifices every ranger has made since World War II up to our modern-day Ranger Warriors. The memorial is to be located at the Headquarters of the 75thRanger Regiment, Fort Benning, Georgia.
Many volunteers have come together to build this project. We have two major contributors who have donated their services, our Architect, Tracy Ward and our Surveyor, Brian King. The artist, Alan Cottrill, for the Global War on Terror (GWOT) Memorial has agreed to work with us pro-bono.
To ensure the memorial is historically accurate, the research efforts will be conducted and led by BG (Ret) John Brown, BG (Ret) William Leszczynski, (RHOF Class of 2007) and Col. (Ret) Ralph Puckett (RHOF Inaugural Class of 1992). This will be in concerted effort with the official historians of our respective Ranger organizations. The goal is for the Ranger veterans organizations affiliated with the 75th Ranger Regiment to join in sharing this endeavor by lending their respective talents, promotions, and fundraisers.
Only through your patriotic generosity and support will this Memorial Walk become a reality. The approximate cost of the build is $1.5 million dollars and the 75th Ranger Regiment Association, a 501c19, has graciously agreed to accept all tax-deductible donations.
