#Rangers from the 75th Ranger Regiment climbed the cliffs of Pointe du Hoc June 5 in honor of the Rangers of #WorldWarII.

The U.S. Army Rangers tackled some of the toughest missions of World War II and became combat legends. These Rangers set the standards for what we all aspire to and they showed us what was possible. Modern Rangers stand on the shoulders of these great men.

Rangers Lead the Way!
