"If you can succeed as a Ranger, you're bound to succeed in life."
SP4 Eugene Rhoden, 2nd Ranger Battalion

"When I was in college studying engineering, my brother was in the Rangers. I thought he was crazy. I kept asking him what kind of future he'd have, jumping out of airplanes. Now he's in college, I'm in the Rangers, and I know what kind of future both of us are going to have.
"I figure if someone instills 110% confidence in you, you can't help but succeed.  And that's exactly what the Rangers do. We train hard physically. We're expected to move faster, go further, work harder. 

"But it's really more mental that physical. In the Ranger battalion, you learn to overcome your fears, which naturally strengthens you. I know, without a doubt, whatever I face, if I can put my mind to it, I can do it."

Along with every Army skill comes the opportunity to push beyond potential and discover what you can really do. For more information, see your local Army Recruiter or call toll free 1-800-USA-ARMY
