Ranger School grad Hunter a member of elite

November 15, 2010

COLUMBUS, Ga. — While many of his fellow Plymouth grads spent time in college classes the past five years, 2004 Plymouth grad Seth Hunter has had a bit different classroom on the way to his bright future.
Enlisting in the Air Force out of school, Hunter’s rise up the ranks has included three combat tours of duty in Iraq, and most recently graduation from the United States Army’s prestigious Ranger School. A Staff Sergeant in the Air Force, Hunter is one of less than 200 Airmen in the history of the Air Force to successfully complete the course.

It was noted that the project actually came in around $2,000 less than quoted.
