Doug Flohr with his wife, Christina, and their family, celebrated his induction to the Ranger Hall of Fame at Fort Moore, Ga.
Retired U.S. Army Col. Doug Flohr, lead systems engineer in the Army Platforms Department, was recently inducted into the prestigious Ranger Hall of Fame at Fort Moore, Ga. The award commemorates 28 years of impactful Army service, a first career he has followed by more than eight years (so far) with MITRE.
Flohr is one of 15 inductees this year, a select group that includes two 4-star generals. Flohr deployed three times to support Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan, “collecting and analyzing essential lessons learned from on-going combat operations,” his Hall of Fame citation notes, and is honored “for his service and embodiment of the Ranger Creed throughout his military and professional career.”
He’s currently the task lead for the Ground Vehicle System Center’s Combat Vehicle Robotics (CoVeR) project at Camp Grayling, Mich., as part of his department’s testing support to improve software for combat vehicle platforms.
Flohr says it was a humbling and surreal experience to stand on the stage and accept his Ranger service recognition. “I don’t think anyone who is inducted in the Ranger Hall of Fame expects to ever be there. Accepting that honor reminded me of the people I served with and respected. I wouldn’t have achieved what I did without their mentorship and support.”
