    Soldiers death in Ranger School swamp phase under investigation

    No word on what caused his death. Could be many things. RIP Ranger.


    Soldiers death in Ranger School swamp phase under investigation

    A soldier attending Ranger Schools swamp phase in Florida died Thursday, according to military officials.
    Spc. James A. Requenez, 28, was under the 6th Ranger Training Battalion at Eglin Air Force Base when his death occurred.


    Requenez, a San Antonio, Texas, native, was an assistant machine gunner assigned to A Company, 3rd Battalion of the 75th Ranger Regiment on Fort Benning.
    Requenez enlisted in the Army in April 2018, graduating from infantry one-station unit training in August of that same year.

    He went on to complete Airborne School and Ranger Assessment and Selection Program 1, or RASP.
    Based on his background, he was the real deal.

    We trained hard. And the work is inherently dangerous in the infantry. But it paid off in combat.

    Most of the Ranger students who die in Florida die from exposure and hypothermia.

    Yes in the winter. It should not have been that cold out.

    Ranger School has 4 phases. Swamp phase is one of the 4. Benning phase, mountain phase, swamp phase, and desert phase.

    Swamp phase.
    This phase focuses on the continued development of the Ranger student's combat arms functional skills. Students receive instruction on waterborne operations, small boat movements, and stream crossings upon arrival. Practical exercises in extended platoon level operations executed in a coastal swamp environment test the Students’ ability to operate effectively under conditions of extreme mental and physical stress. This training further develops the Students' ability to plan and lead small units during independent and coordinated airborne, air assault, small boat, and dismounted combat patrol operations in a low intensity combat environment against a well trained, sophisticated enemy.[21]
