    Sgt. Peney has left some big shoes to fill. He is sorely missed by 1/75. If you aren't familiar with what he did on target last night two years ago, here is a short summary:

    On this date: May 31/June 1, 2010: Sgt. Jonathan K. Peney, Company D, 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment distinguished himself through exceptionally valorous achievement; earning the Silver Star (awarded posthumously) while deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom; while serving as a Ranger Platoon Medic.

    During the night of May 31-June 1, 2nd Platoon, Delta Company executed a helicopter assault raid in order to disrupt the enemy. Just moments after making contact, a Team Leader positioned on a rooftop on the northern end of the objective suffered a gunshot wound to the right shoulder.

    Sgt. Peney, the ground force's medic, received the call from the ground force's Platoon Sergeant requesting medical treatment for the wounded Team Leader. Sgt. Peney moved rapidly up a ladder to the rooftop of where a squad was pinned down. Without any hesitation or regard for his own personal safety, Sgt. Peney knowingly placed himself in the path of effective enemy fire in a valorous attempt to reach the fallen Team Leader and provide him critical medical treatment.

    Sgt. Peney knowingly maneuvered without cover or concealment up a ladder to the casualty's rooftop location where he was mortally wounded by enemy fire.

    Sgt. Peney's actions under direct fire and his overwhelming dedication and commitment to the welfare of his ground forces on the battlefield, inspired the men of 2nd Platoon to gain fire superiority over the enemy, retrieve the pinned down squad and casualties and repel numerous enemy attacks on the objective area throughout the remaining daylight hours.

    Rangers Lead the Way!

    A true hero. The Regiment named / dedicated an aid station after him, correct?
