Airman Ranger: JBER airman completes grueling Army school

A Ranger tab is seen on the shoulder of Senior Airman Stephen Becker, a native of Minerva, Ohio, at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, Jan. 31, 2014, while he talks about how the leadership skills he developed during the course will benefit the Air Force. Becker is the 257th airman to graduate from the U.S. Army Ranger School at Fort Benning, Ga. The purpose of the school is to develop combat skills of selected officers and enlisted men by requiring them to perform effectively as small unit leaders in a realistic tactical environment, under mental and physical stress approaching that found in actual combat.
