BEING A RANGER
DISCIPLINE, INTELLIGENCE, AND DETERMINATION
To be a part of the 75th Ranger Regiment requires personal excellence across many Soldier and leader attributes. Rangers are more than just physically strong, Rangers are smart, tough, courageous, and disciplined. Rangers are self-starters, adventurers, and hard chargers. They internalize the mentality of a "more elite Soldier", as the Ranger Creed states and as their intense mission requirements demand.
Rangers are role model Soldiers – mentally, morally, and physically – who use their minds as well as bodies to make sound judgments, reasoned decisions, and ultimately to never quit. Rangers demonstrate discipline both on and off duty, and their Regimental standards are enduring.
When then Army Chief of Staff General Creighton Abrams envisioned the modern Ranger force, he emphasized the professional unit excellence stems from individual Ranger personal excellence and character. He directed that "wherever the battalion goes, it will be apparent that it is the best". Members of the 75th Ranger Regiment live this charter both personally and professionally every day.
