Back in 2015 we had the pleasure of sitting on an interview (behind the scenes) with LTG(R) David E. Grange Jr. while he was answering some questions about his service, the Best Ranger Competition (that is named after him) as well as what he thinks the future of the Competition and the Army will be. After the interview, the footage went dark for a few years while they were deciding how to get it posted for everyone to enjoy.
In case you don't know about LTG(R) Grange, here's a quick breakdown of a 41 year career in the Army:
Lieutenant General David E. Grange, Jr., is inducted into the Ranger Hall of Fame for his dedication to duty and contributions to the U.S. Army as a Ranger qualified leader. Lieutenant General Grange is a veteran of 20 campaigns in three wars as an infantryman and served with distinction throughout in the U.S. Army.
For those of you in the Army, here's a quick glance at his awards (just on the uniform):
Working with Candyss Bryant (who is awesome and a true VIP of the Ranger Community) who conducted the interview - we think we finally found a path to get these 'Stories' out there as well as a way to break them down into different parts and make them user friendly for a generation that has a short attention span. On that note, the decision was made to go through her notes and break each of these Q&As into smaller videos - each focusing on something different but keeping all of the parts
So.... now we got access to the original video and worked with her to get them broken out and added some loading screens, reference pictures as well as other editing, just in time to present them before the 2018 Best Ranger Competition. These will start trickling out to our YouTube Channel and the Best Ranger Competition Facebook Page very soon... we hope you enjoy the stories as much as we did...
Be sure to check for more videos coming soon... there are (20) total in our set!
