Best Rangers go for the prize

April 25, 2004

Fort Benning-- It's a competition that's said to be a cross between  the popular reality shows Survivor and Fear Factor but the competitors are some of America's bravest.

The final hour of U.S. Army's Best Ranger Competition is just wrapping up at Fort Benning. For 60 hours, teams made up of two rangers compete in a series of survivor-style obstacles from racing to marksmanship.

"We keep ourselves at the highest physical condition so I feel that we can come out and do something like this," says Staff Sgt.Collan Boley.

This is the 21st year of the competition. The winning team receives a trophy and more importantly, bragging rights.
