George Spillman is a graduate of the US Army Ranger school and was deployed out of Fort Lewis, Washington when he fought overseas. Spillman earned the Carnegie Medal after rescuing a mother and her children from a burning truck in the field. He is now the owner of several small businesses in Northern California and is currently looking into the technology industry after working in the property development sector for much of his business career. The discipline that Spillman built as a US Army Ranger, especially when in training, helped him build his career after he left the Army and started his own business in Northern California.
George Spillman, before he was deployed from Fort Lewis, Washington, had to graduate from the most difficult military training school in the world. The US Army Ranger School prepares students to join the most elite and deadly fighting force within the world’s most powerful military. Ranger Training began with the formation and official training of seventeen Airborne Companies by the Ranger Training Command in 1950 at Fort Benning, Georgia. Training is sixty-one days of intense physical conditioning, weapons training, tactical training, and more. Many soldiers drop out of Ranger school because of the intense training, but Spillman stuck it out and earned the title ‘Ranger.’
George Spillman eventually was deployed from Fort Lewis, Washington to fight overseas. The structure and accountability he internalized as a Ranger gave him the tools he needed to succeed in business as well.
