Skip to comments.The key players in the Ranger School records story must testify before Congress
Posted on 10/22/2015 9:04:38 PM PDT by usdefensewatch
On September 15, 2015, Congressman Steve Russell requested the Ranger School records of the first two female graduates, Captain Kristen Griest and First Lieutenant Shaye Haver. Since September 15th, the Army has done everything possible to stall and obstruct Congressman Russells investigation, while creating a bodyguard of lies surrounding the story.
The Secretary of the Army stalled Russell for nine days and then asked for an extension to obtain documents readily available.
The Army waited another two weeks to tell Russell the documents had been shredded.
The Army refuses to tell anyone what the schools policy is for the storage and destruction of Ranger School records.

Apparently the policy is, if anyone with political suck noses around the ol’ HQ, all pertinent training records are shredded.
Are we playing ‘Let’s pretend’ here? I know it’s hard to think straight after listening to Hillary Thing lie for several hours, but this ain’t rocket science.
Do you think your 37 year old Civics teacher Mrs. Cleaver could have hit the sleds with you and fifty other 16 through 18 year old guys also running sprints, running tires, popping pads, stopping every now and then to puke, and ... I mean, c’mon.
Steve should also ask why PETA/SPCA has authority to dictate to the military who will kill dinner in SERE.
They are getting their marching orders from Nobama. There is not even one single speck of honor in Washington anymore. Not a speck.
I am sorry but the things this Congress focus’ on is amazing. No budget in 7 years.....Continuing Resolutions which is not a budget. When are these guys going to get to work. Can’t even pick a leader. They have to force one on the House. Yes finally Ryan is stepping up (worst possible pick but what can you do). It is stunning that they make 156 thousand a year, work 3 days a week and can’t keep their basic requirements up to date. So sad. We asked for this Republican Congress too. Yikes. I hope in 2016, we can pick a Congress that actually wants to work.
Steve Russell is one of the very few GOP representatives who can speak with any credibility regarding military service. We are lucky to have him advocating for a war fighting military and not a military whose focus is social experimentation.
What kind of person signs up to serve under this type of CIC? The person of character and high moral standards will either be ejected by the bureaucracy who work for him, or they will be wise enough to know not to sign up in the first place.
