Best Ranger Contest Preparation

BEST RANGER

 The Best Ranger Competition 2017, is the 34th anniversary of this grueling competition, starring the best soldiers of the world, our United States Army, RANGERS!

The Best Ranger Competition was started in 1982 after Dick Leandri found a way to honor his personal friend, Lieutenant General David E. Grange, Jr.

The competition has evolved over the past thirty years from one that was originally created to salute the best two man “buddy” team in the Ranger Department at Fort Benning, GA to determine the best two-man team from the entire United States Armed Forces.

First News was there Monday April 3rd as the Rangers continued qualifying for this years competition that officially gets underway on April 7th and ends on the 9th.

Rangers in the featured picture for this story are having their gear checked by Best Ranger judges on Fort Benning to make sure they have what they need but nothing extra that could give them an edge over other competitors.
