...William McRaven, chief of U S Special Operations Command, told a crowd at an intelligence symposium at the Tampa Convention Center. "My soldiers have been fighting now for 12, 13 years in hard combat, hard combat."

You will forever be known as a Ranger, and all of your actions must serve to further the legacy of those that came before you. This Best Ranger Competition is no different."
