1-503 holds pre-Ranger course while deployed in Ghazni province

U.S. Army Lt. Col. Jeremy Schroeder, commander of 1st Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, speaks to the graduates of 1st Battalion’s two-week pre-Ranger course at Forward Operating Base Ghazni, Afghanistan, Dec. 23, 2012. After weeks of planning and with the help of the Ranger Training Brigade at Fort Benning, Ga., who sent the most current course materials, a cadre of Ranger-qualified noncommissioned officers from 1st Battalion put together a course, focusing on the fundamentals taught at what is generally considered one of the toughest courses the army offers. “We were pulling information from stateside to make it accurate and to get the most updated techniques from Ranger School itself,” said U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Zachari Rushing, of Gulf Breeze, Fla., one of the instructors of the course and the lead in creating the course.
