  • Friday, November 11th, 6.30am, 9am, 4.30pm – Veteran’s Workout, Tommy Mac. “The whole thing with Tommy is that he embodies everything that’s right about Ranger Battalion. He held the position of Ranger Team Leader which is literally the tip of the spear. He was the consummate, quiet professional—he expected absolutely zero recognition for what he did. He loved his job because he was a born protector.

He died doing what he loved; protecting all of us. ” Learn more here.
