MSG (Ret) Max Mullen was a Ranger Instructor, was recognized as a Distinguished Member of the Ranger Training Brigade, co-authored the US Army Combatives Manual and combat dropped (from 500’) onto the island of Grenada with 2/75 during Operation Urgent Fury. He was a Master Parachutist (with CBT star) and received numerous accolades during his career for leadership and ability (for instance at one point his Ranger rifle platoon had the highest number of EIB (Expert Infantry Badge) recipients of any other platoon in the Regiment).
Over the course of his 26-year career MSG (Ret) Mullen served with the following units:

Mullen got the word 14 APR 13 at 1415L in a phone call from the 75THRanger Regiment. Shortly afterward he wrote, “I am totally speechless and still in shock and awe…I’m still trying to take it all in…deeply honored and humbled to be accounted amongst the legends of our Ranger history. Thank you my Ranger brothers for all your support and friendship, and also to my family and friends who have stood by my side. This is not about me but about my fellow Ranger brothers. Being inducted into the Ranger Hall of Fame is one of the greatest honors a Ranger can receive. Words cannot describe the emotions and feelings I’m experiencing right now. Rangers Lead The Way!”
Mullen remains active in the tactical community and recently played the role of CIA Agent Duncan in the trailer for BLACK (a forthcoming web series). He continues to administer and edit Tactical MilSim Magazine, where he coordinates the efforts of an impressive stable of writers.
Mullen’s induction will be during Ranger Rendezvous 2013.
