More On Grant
Upon graduation in 2006 from the University of Alabama with a degree in finance, Grant Mcgarry reported to Fort Benning with an enlistment contract “for the hardest thing the Army has to offer.” Following his graduation from Basic, AIT and the Airborne Course, Mcgarry graduated from the Ranger Indoctrination Program and was assigned to the 1st Ranger Battalion in Savannah, Georgia. While assigned to 1st Battalion, Grant held a number of positions and leadership assignments, from rifleman to machine gun team leader, and both squad Alpha and Bravo Team leader.
Between deployments, Sergeant Mcgarry graduated from the U.S. Army Ranger School and was awarded the coveted Ranger Tab. On his fifth and last deployment to Afghanistan, while searching for a High Value Target, Sergeant Mcgarry and his squad were involved in a vicious firefight with enemy forces in the Pech Valley. As a consequence of his actions during the battle, Sergeant Mcgarry was awarded the Bronze Star with “Valor” Device.
Following the completion of his enlistment in 2011, Mcgarry was a civilian security contractor at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, during and after the withdrawal of coalition forces. Upon Grant’s return to the U.S. in 2012, he started his own business, Live the Ranger Creed, LLC., (Ltrc-ops.com), and is continuing his education at Emory University in their MBA program.
