The Regiment

The 75th Ranger Regiment is the Army's Premier Special Operations raid force. The Regiment is comprised of specially selected and well trained soldiers. Our four-time volunteer force provides the nation a range of capabilities not found in any other special operations or conventional force. Simultaneously, we conduct large-scale joint forcible entry operations and execute surgical special operations raids around the globe in high-risk areas. As standard-bearers for discipline and excellence, our Regiment migrates leaders throughout the operational force to enable our Army to win our nations wars. We lead the way in readiness.

Ranger History

Our history dates back to the Colonial American days when Capt. Benjamin Church and Maj. Robert Rogers both formed Ranger units to fight during King Phillips War and the French and Indian War. Robert Rogers wrote the 19 standing orders which are still in use today.

From that point in history, to the current fight, Rangers have been involved in nearly every conflict in defense of our nation with over 300 years of Ranger history. 

Historic Engagements

The Modern Day 75th Ranger Regiment 

Coming out of the Vietnam War, Gen Creighton Abrams had been impressed with the success of the Ranger companies during the war. As the Chief of Staff of the Army, Gen Abrams ordered the stand up and activation of the Ranger Battalion. This was the first time in the history of the Rangers that a Ranger unit was activated without the country being involved in a conflict. On January 25th 1974, Headquarters of the United States Armed Forces Command published General order 127 directing the activation of the 1st Ranger Battalion with an effective date of January 31st 1974 stationed at Ft Stewart, GA. With the activation of the Ranger Battalion came Abram's Charter:

The Ranger Battalion is to be an elite, light and most proficient infantry battalion in the world. A Battalion that can do things with its hands and weapons better than anyone. The Battalion will contain no "hoodlums or brigands" and if the battalion is formed from such persons, it will be disbanded. Wherever the battalion goes, it must be apparent that it is the best."  

Later that year on October 1st 1974, 2nd Ranger Battalion would be activated at Ft Lewis, WA. 

Ten years later, on October 3rd 1984, 3rd Ranger Battalion and the 75th Ranger Regiment Headquarters would be activated at Ft. Benning, GA.

The Regiment would again grow with the activation of the Ranger Special Troops Battalion (RSTB) on October 16th 2007

Most recently, on May 1st 2017, the Regiment activated the Regimental Military Intelligence Battalion (RMIB). 

The Ranger Creed

The Ranger Creed 

Written by CSM Neil Gentry, the 1st Ranger Battalion Command Sergeant Major, the Creed is a set of values and beliefs we live by every day. It guides us through our character and actions. It is how we act, even when nobody is watching.
