Army Ranger. He went to basic and AIT at Fort Benning Georgia. After basic he attended Javelin school and the airborne school. Upon completion of airborne he went to RIP(Ranger Indoctrination Program) which is a 3 week selection type phase that you must pass and meet the standards of the 75th Ranger Regiment to have the privilege of then either selecting 1st, 2nd or 3rd Battalion’s which Kyle chose 3rd. He was on a plane to Afghanistan December 31, 2003 with his Platoon to conduct his first deployment where they stayed at Bagraam and operated from. They trained and conducted multiple direct action raids along with many other Joint Ops for HVTS. Kyle then graduated Ranger School in August 2004 at the age of 19 and within one month headed back overseas to Mosul Iraq. November 14, 2004 he celebrated his 20th birthday with an amazing night capturing some HVTs and fast roping in and leaving out on the DAPS. November 28 they rolled out to hit a target responsible for mortar attacks on a local FOB. Kyle ended up being shot during the fire fight just below the right knee and through the right hamstring with multiple fragments in his left quad and hip. Upon returning home and being told his dream of being a Ranger was over and that he could stay in and go to a regular Army unit or take a med board; he decided to get out and seek a job in the real world. He was discharged from the Army July 25, 2005. Rangers Lead The Way!!!!! The Never Quit Challenge is Honored to have Kyle on board Representing Team Havoc
