The 101st Airborne Division Best Ranger competitors spent the past three months submitting themselves to excruciating training.

Their training and preparation will be put to the test April 13-15 at the annual competition at Fort Benning, Georgia.

The competition, now in its 35th year, calls upon the best Ranger-qualified Soldiers in the Army to represent their units and home stations in a series of grueling tasks over a three-day period. The Rangers compete in two-man “buddy teams” and face physical, mental and endurance challenges to determine which unit has the best Rangers in the Army.

 The Camp Hinsch pre-Ranger course instructors played a pivotal role in the preparation of the six Fort Campbell competitors. Since January, the competitors have completed long road marches with more than 70 pounds of weight, long-distance runs for time, stress-focused shooting ranges and other tasks they will face at Fort Benning.
