Congratulations, 1st Lt. Hibsch! Only around 300 Airmen across Air Force Specialty codes have earned the Ranger tab since 1955 and 1st Lt. Chelsey Hibsch is one of them.
The Army Ranger Course is one of the Army’s toughest leadership courses, with a concentration on small-unit tactics and combat leadership. The course seeks to develop proficiency in leading squad and platoon dismounted operations in an around-the-clock, all-climates and terrain atmosphere. Only about half of those attending the Ranger School actually graduate.
Hibsch will be a flight commander in the 821st Contingency Response Support Squadron at Travis Air Force Base in California.
