Message: Reference Michael Conley. Conley did indeed graduate from Ranger School and was assigned to Camp Merrill. I do not know in what capacity he served, but he lists himself as a Ranger Instructor. This is a very interesting individual whose bio can be see on the Professional Soldiers website. A legend in his own mind.

Message: "I was reading this from a book, so not sure how accurate the info is. The 1st paragraph says The Ranger Department of the Infantry School ay Ft Benning Georgia was established in 1951 to provide individual Ranger training to officers and noncommissioned officers. The 1st class to earn the Ranger tab graduated in March 1952." The Ranger Training Center was established on 29 September 1950. Also activated on 29 September 1950 were the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Ranger Infantry Companies (Airborne) The first training cycle was completed on 13 November graduating the four companies and awarding Ranger tabs to each man. The 1st Ranger Co.departed Fort Benning by train for the San Francisco Port of Embarkation on 15 November. I am in the process of writing a history of the 1st Company begun by my Ranger buddy CSM Chuck Waters who has since passed on to the big DZ in the sky.
