Dr. Tony Brooks now a chiropractor, grew up in Roseville,CA. He excelled in the classroom and athletics. He suffered a setback his senior year when he tore his right ACL in a pickup basketball game. After high school he enrolled in the University of Arizona where during his first month of college the attacks of 9/11 happened. While still in college Tony saw that Pat Tillman had enlisted in the United States Army foregoing a huge contract extension with he Arizona Cardinals to become a US Army Ranger. So in 2003 he enlisted as an 11B with an option 40 to become a Ranger himself. Fast forward to 2005 and as a a member of the 2nd Ranger Battalion was tasked with the recovery of Turbine 33, 16 operators that were aboard, and the 4 man recon team that Marcus Latrell (the Lone Survivor) was apart of. The mission was initially slated to last only 12 hours but ended up stretching for almost 3 days. Tonight we hear the story from one Ranger about all Rangers who put it on the line for the United States day after day after day.
