1993 US 75th Ranger Radioman Combat Package

During the Battle of Mogadishu, the 75th rangers were designated the task of deploying by fast rope around target buildings to guard the members of Delta force whilst they assaulted buildings to capture key targets. They were also vehicle mounted in convoys for INFIL and EXFIL. There were many different roles within the 75th Rangers all working together to get the job done.


The radioman’s job was to keep up communication between all the different teams on the ground, the helicopter teams in the area and the Command elements back at base. Without this communication it would have been impossible to keep up the accurate helicopter gun runs that kept many people alive throughout the day and night they were in the city.
