We would like to say congratulations to GGBN alum and @canisiusalumni 2LT Trevor Hamm! 2LT Hamm recently graduated from the US Army Ranger school at Fort Benning, GA. Ranger School is is of the the toughest training courses for which a Soldier can volunteer. Army Rangers are experts in leading Soldiers on difficult missions - and to do this, they need rigorous training. For more than two months, Ranger students train to exhaustion, pushing the limits of their minds and bodies. 2LT Hamm is from Cleveland, Ohio and graduated from @canisius_college with a BA in Entrepreneurship. He commissioned as an Active Duty Infantry officer in 2019 and attended the Infantry Basic Officer Leader Course prior to starting Ranger School. He will be stationed with the 1st Infantry Division also known as The “Big Red One” at Fort Riley, Kansas. Keep up the great work 2LT Hamm!

As we grind further into this unprecedented virtual learning time GGBN offered a different opportunity to connect with one another and cadre. During our normal Leadership Lab time we held “Coffee with Cadre” via Zoom. This provided a virtual discussion room for GGBN to catch up with one another and discuss any issues or questions cadets might have. It was a lot of fun overall and GGBN is staying strong!
