The third stanza of the Ranger creed is "Never shall I leave a fallen comrade …" and Ranger medics are some of the best trained to save lives on the battlefield. 

"Absolute Mastery of the Basics has always been a standard to live by within the 75th Ranger Regiment. The mastery of casualty response and medical skills at all levels has saved numerous Ranger lives. Through lessons learned, and adapting and adopting evolving technologies and capabilities, the Regiment will continue to move forward in tactical healthcare. The 75th Ranger Regiment continues to employ the best Casualty Response Program in the DOD."

We sat down with several members of the 75th Ranger Regiment Medical Section at their Regimental HQ to talk about what it takes to be a Ranger Medic.

U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Jim Reese served 25 years in the Army and distinguished himself in the 75th Ranger Regiment and “Delta Force,” the U.S. elite counter-terrorist force. He has advised international leaders on six continents and served in contingency operations in the Balkans and Colombia and combat operations in both Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan) and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Immediately following 9/11, the U.S. Secretary of Defense selected Reese to serve as the lead advisor for Special Operations to the Director of the CIA for operational planning and integration of CIA and military special operation elements in the invasion of Afghanistan and Operation Enduring Freedom. In 2003, the U.S. General designated as the Combined Forces Coalition Commander personally requested Reese to be his primary advisor for the integration of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) for the Iraq invasion.
Reese retired from “Delta Force” in 2007.
