    Hi, I served in Co. F back in 1985 when it was still a Ranger Company… Do you still have open membership?

  6. Dear Sirs,

    I was trying to contact the 425 thru the web but came across this site.  Can you put me in contact with the 425 about some specific training for our unit ? i.e. rapelling. We are on course to deploy to Afganistan and our particular MOS  would greatly be better rounded with this type of training.

    I was a member of the Co. F. 425 when it was Co. F of the 225 Inf. Nov. 1965-Nov. 1971
     Capt. Frank Storer was Co. Comander, Jack Groner was the 1st Sergant,  Capt Tack became the CO. when the transition was made to LRRP Airbone Ranger (425th) we were at the light Guard Armory in Detroit and ended up at the Artillary Armory on 8 mile in Southfield ….When Did Jack Groner pass and can you tell me how…I was in the field at Grayling when Capt. Patocki passed…..Thank You in advance for your kindness.

  8. Spec 4 Reidmiller here, sir. It has indeed been a long time since I occupied the orderly room with Sgt Clark. Those were great times. Paperwork makes the world go ’round!
    My wife and I just finished up volunteering for the Operation Injured Soldiers booth at the Allegan County Fair; a fine organization offering free, yes FREE hunting, fishing, skydiving and much more with ALL travel (no matter where the event takes place), lodging and food costs are paid for. Not one dime comes out of the vet’s pocket. Disabled vets take precedence, but any open slots are offered to non-disabled vets. Contact me for more info.

    hi tom will send you the cash sometime in the next two weeks. I case you have not heard I was QRB from the guard on June 30 2013. After 33 years 5 months 2 deployments OIF2 OEF10 the only thing I got was a phone call by some bullshit CSM at 1030 at night to tell me I was QRBed.  then some letter two days latter saying the some thing. When I ETS from the 82nd at least the division commander came to shank my hand and give  me a letter for the 3  years I serviced down at Bragg. The did not give me shit could be because I was in the 425. In 33 years I  was in the 82nd the 425 and 3 other guard units to tell you the truth the 425 was the best. maybe the state should learn from airborne units how to take care of the men who serviced by giving them a good sendoff. the 425 give everyone who left when we got back from Iraq a good sendoff lots of class. just like the state no class at all. take care be safe Ranger Lead The way SFCK
