The Best Ranger Competition 2020, is the 37th anniversary of this grueling competition, starring the best soldiers of the world, our United States Army, RANGERS! The Best RangerCompetition 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 twenty-nine 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.
The Best Ranger Competition is a US Army event and supported by The National Ranger Association, Inc. (501 c-3: 58-2023357). The Association was formed in 1998 and is governed by a board of six. The Association was established to recognize distinguished members in the Ranger community and to promote the values established in the Ranger Creed. The National Ranger Association helps to raise funds to support events surrounding The Best Ranger Competition, The Ranger Hall of Fame and the Distinguished Member of the Brigade.
