There are many general officers in the U.S. military, but there are few who truly leave their mark on the organization after they have finished serving in its ranks. LTG (Ret) Michael Ferriter is one of those few. His commitment to not only serving his country, during multiple times of conflict, as a Ranger and beyond, along with his steadfast leadership have made the military a healthier and more lethal fighting force. LTG Ferriter is also responsible for bringing the Combatives Program to the Army. But, it's his thirty-plus years of service in uniform, and uncompromising sense of integrity, having lead soldiers from the elite 75th Ranger Regiment to taking care of military families as the commanding general of Installation Management Command that stand out as his greatest achievements. We were lucky enough to have him share with us his journey through the ranks and what he's doing now to continue to influence lives, on this latest edition of HAZARD GROUND! |
