From October 19-20, 2018 Cadets from the Eastern Washington University (EWU) Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program competed in the regional Ranger Challenge competition held at Ft. Harrison located just outside of Helena, Montana.

This year’s Ranger Challenge featured 11 complex and physically challenging events such as rock climbing walls, obstacles courses, nighttime land navigation, and stress shoots.  The EWU ROTC team placed 1st in four of the events.  The first event they placed first in was the Tactical Combat Casualty Carry.  This event had the Cadets move tactically and search for the entrance to a tunnel complex.
