Who is Ranger?

Ranger personnel are active participants in a wide variety of philanthropic and volunteer pursuits. We share a passion for lending a hand-up to our heroes, as well as to young people and the general public.  


Today, we continue our long-standing commitment to veteran's organizations and to improving education, economic opportunity, and helping people to find meaning and significance by helping others. 


We're just beginning.

Heroes for Freedom & Liberty

Mark Ryan, Ranger's EVP & Director of Business Development, has devoted thousands of hours as a founder, organizer, and board member of Heroes for Freedom & Liberty. 


In 2016, the HFL event in Kentucky, in partnership with the Hershel "Woody" Williams Medal of Honor Foundation, provided resources for the benefit of US Veterans, their families, and Gold Star Families.

In 2017, our Heroes for Freedom & Liberty organization honored over twenty WW II veterans, 5 Medal of Honor Recipients (one posthumously), and two POW’s.  A mortgage free home was awarded to a military hero and family. All proceeds generated were donated to the Military Warriors Support Foundation. 

Military Warriors Support Foundation

Ranger is proud to support the MWSF in its aid to wounded Veterans and their survivors.

  • Nearly 800 Mortgage-Free Homes Awarded
  • Nearly $18 Million in Heroes Debt Reduced
  • Financial Aid and Life Skills Mentoring
  • Home & Apartment Leases
  • Transportation

More than 95% of contributed funds directly support our wounded veterans and their families.

Project Bluelight

Project Bluelight, in support of the US Border Patrol and the US Drug Enforcement Agency, has helped to save many thousands of lives. 


Bluelight volunteer scouts are a highly trained and disciplined civilian corps dedicated to helping US authorities intercede against human trafficking, drug smuggling, gun smuggling, and international terrorism. They save the lives of immigrants who are abandoned and left to die in the Arizona desert. 

Education & Opportunity

For more than a decade, Daniel Pearlson, our CEO & Chairman, has provided extensive financial and volunteer resources to K-12 Public Schools, Colleges, and Universities;  and to the development of infrastructures and technologies in support of STEM education and life-long learning throughout the United States. 


Now, Ranger personnel also supports the Kanawha County School District with financial grants, no-cost mentoring resources and engineering grants, to help widen job opportunities, understanding, and academic achievement in West Virginia.

My Life My Power Foundation

The MLMP Program has received scientific support based on the strength of systematic evaluations that measure Program outcome effectiveness. Evaluation of the MLMP program utilizes  pre-assessment and post-assessment to capture a broad range of outcome data. Overall,  findings have shown an increases in self-esteem, a corresponding decrease in aggression and victimization, dramatically improved academic performance, and sharp reduction of dropout rates.

The MLMP Mentoring Program trains and encourages US military Veterans to provide mentorships to young people. We organize, train, and financially support safe and secure avenues to enable veterans to advocate for and help guide young people to find their best selves. This is an effective means to help Veterans reconnect to civilian life, and helps all to build strength, and to find purpose, fulfillment, and significance together.
