U.S. Army ROTC cadets from Missouri and eight surrounding states will meet at Fort Leonard Wood today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday), to compete in the U.S. Army Cadet Command 3rd Brigade Ranger Challenge. During this event, cadets in college ROTC programs from far and wide will compete in tasks like the obstacle course, first aid, leader reaction course, weapons skills and pistol shoot, and a grenade assault lane, among other tasks. The winning team will represent the brigade at the Sandhurst Military Skills Competition at West Point, New York, in the spring. With some more information, here is Corneal Adam J Lewis, Commander of the third brigade USACC.
Corneal Lewis also wanted to emphasize the impact the support of Fort Lenard Wood has had on the challenge.
Army ROTC produces approximately 70 percent of the officers entering the Army each year and is available through nearly 1,000 college campuses nationwide ranging from Harvard to Berkley — from Tufts to Ohio State.
