Army’s 1st Black Ranger instructor remembered for fighting crime in Columbus, Georgia | Army Times

In honor of Milton “Davey” Lockett Jr., the Columbus Police Department named its community room after him. Lockett is the very first ever Black Ranger instructor in the Army who has also inducted into the Rangers’ Hall of Fame in 2001. He became a Black Ranger instructor in 1959 and led a front-line attack on crime in the 1990s, helping start Carver Heights Against Drugs, making him a local hero at least twice in his life.
