Renowned for their superior skill, unmatched precision, and fierce discipline, the soldiers of the U.S. Army Rangers are members of one of the world’s most elite specialized fighting force. The United States Army Rangers are an elite rapid-deployment unit of the United States Army and are graduates from the U.S. Army Ranger School. The term ranger has been in use unofficially in a military context since the early 17th century. There have been American military companies officially called Rangers since the American Revolution.
The modern Rangers have been deployed in Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Panama and Grenada. The Ranger Training Brigade is headquartered at Fort Benning and administers the Ranger School. Participants must complete the training with satisfactory performance, required to become Ranger qualified and to wear the Ranger tab.
