  • 14-year-old Riley Woina, of Plymouth, Conn., (left) became one of the Army's newest Rangers during a graduation at Fort Benning today.  Col. Michael Linnington, United States Army Infantry School's assistant commandant pinned him with a coveted Ranger tab.  Woina, who has been diagnosed with cycstic fibrosis, stood in the ranks with other Ranger students at Fort Benning with the help of Fort Benning's Ranger Training Brigade and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  As part of his wish, Woina spent a week training with the Ranger students at Camp Rudder, during the "swamp phase." Swamp phase is the school's final phase of training prior to graduation.  While there, he observed an Airborne operation, negotiated a Zodiac boat on a river operation, crossed a river on a one-rope-bridge, went on an orientation flight in a UH-1V helicopter, participated in snake handling and rappelling demonstrations and toured Eglin Air Force Base.
