Rangers Lead the Way!
1st Lt. Benjamin Gardner, Ranger Assessment Course student, focuses on react to contact techniques during the RAC near Schofield Barracks, Oahu, Hawaii, May 18, 2019. The Airmen who pass the RAC gain more than a ticket into Ranger School and knowledge on Army tactics – they learn to lead. Throughout the course, Airmen were tested on their ability to perform land navigation, ambush, react to contact and squad attacks. Along with those assessments, the students went on runs and marches of different distances – all leading up to a 12-mile ruck march two days before graduation. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
