Shannon McGoey, 20, graduated Ranger School in August and has been promoted to corporal with the 75th Ranger Regiment in the Army Infantry. McGoey is stationed in Fort Benning, Ga.

McGoey has completed various rigorous trainings, including and not limited to Airborne School, Ranger School and RASP (in order to be selected to serve with the 75th Regiment Army Rangers). Ranger School is one of the toughest training courses. Army Rangers are experts in leading soldiers on difficult missions — and to do this they need rigorous training. For more than two months, Ranger students train to exhaustion, pushing the limits of their minds and bodies, learning to lead teams of men in small arms tactics and battle execution.

After graduating Ranger School, Corporal McGoey was made a team leader in his squad. McGoey is currently on his second deployment in Afghanistan with some of the bravest men in the main force.

McGoey, the Son of Patrick and Diane McGoey, grew up in Cameron Park, attended Ponderosa High school and entered the service just after turning 19 years old.
