Greetings all!

Today is a very special day for the First Ranger Battalion! On this day back in 2011, the 1st RB was officially activated. We've come a long way since then and seen so many faces pass through. Like any organized group, we've had our ups and downs but we've always prevailed and have come back stronger. We continue to be one of the marque units in Day of Infamy having a very steady community player involvement on all of our servers. Just recently, we won our first official engagement against the 502nd PIR. It was a hard fought battle and the 502nd put up a tough fight but we were able to prevail. I'm excited to see more matches in future against the 502nd and others.

On a more personal note, Major Bos and Technical Sergeant Kruijthoff will both be heading to reserves. Both of them have contributed copious amounts of time to the 1st RB and we thank them for their service. As a result, Griffin has been promoted to Major and will be the new Executive Officer of the Battalion and running the Company in his stead is Captain Rifle and First Lieutenant Johnson.

Rangers Lead the Way!

Greetings all!

It's been quite a long time since my last entry and I'm excited to write down the first one for 2017. Much has happened since the last update in summer. Able Company was unfortunately disbanded due to a lack of interest and activity from the overall community of Day of Defeat Source. We had been in DODS for 5+ years and it has been a wild but exciting ride. With budding interest for new games soon to be released, the interest in the DODS realism community as a whole was down and it became harder and harder to justify our presence there.

With DODS on the decline, Day of Infamy is surging. We are operating 3 public servers at full capacity almost every night and more than half of their population is non-1st RB. It's astounding to see how well were are currently doing within the community and we are not going to take it for granted. Among the DOI community is fresh faces and individuals who have never had the pleasure to experience what a realism unit has to offer. We hope to provide that experience for all interested individuals as we currently have many new members of our own.

Baker Company continues to be led by Captain Griffin, and his new Executive Officer; First Lieutenant Stringer. Rounding out the command structure is long time soldier First Sergeant Rifle, relatively new but veteran soldier Second Lieutenant Johnson, and the rookie addition Technical Sergeant Foucha. I have no doubts they will continue to steer Baker Company in the right direction!

Rangers Lead the Way!
