Less Than 2 Days Until The Start Of The Best Ranger Competition

The Best Ranger Competition celebrates it's 28th anniversary this year.  The competition will be held April 15-17 at Fort Benning, GA

The Best Ranger Competition 2011, is the 28th 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 is a 3-day event consisting of physical and mental tasks undertaken with very little rest between events. Selected events must be completed to remain in the competition. The historical attrition rate averages approximately 60%. Competitors are not aware of test sequence until arriving at the test site.

Good luck to all those who will be brutalized over the three days.  You're totally AWESOME just competing.
