memory of Ranger Delbert Ferguson
Ranger Ferguson served in A
Co, 2nd Ranger Battalion. As an Original 2nd Bn Ranger, he participated
in and survived the famed climb up Point du Hoc to capture potential
enemy fire from that high point above the beaches. He served with his
Ranger Buddies throughout the War receiving both a Bronze and Silver
Star for actions that have been lost with the many records of so many
Rangers. He was wounded and also received a Purple Heart.
Ranger Ferguson passed on 10
April 2007 and will be greatly missed by the Ranger Family that now
spans many conflicts and generations. He was a Ranger who led the way
for others to follow in both service and civilian life.
