A hero, after all, should be remembered -- always

Someone you should know. He graduated from Duke and enlisted in the Army then went "Ranger".

Regan arrived at Duke and it wasn't long before he known on campus and on the team. He was a scholar in the classroom and was selected from Duke to the academic all-ACC team. On the Blue Devils team he scored 22 goals and four assists, and led the team to a four-year record of 43 wins, 21 losses and two ACC championships along with four trips to the NCAA tournament. His senior year, Regan was selected for the ACC all-tournament team.

He earned a bachelor's degree in economics, with a minor in business and marketing and was immediately offered a position with UBS, a financial services company. He was also offered a scholarship to attend Southern Methodist University's Law School.

Life, as they say, was looking good for Regan. He met the girl of his dreams. He had great options. He also had great dedication.

Instead of accepting the job or the scholarship, Regan volunteered for military service. He passed on going to officer candidate school and, instead, entered the Army on Feb. 11, 2004, focusing on becoming a Ranger.

Read the rest.
