The title comes home!

I haven't posted in a few days because of the 25th annual Best Ranger Competition, held here at Fort Benning, Ga.

I am very proud to report that Staff Sgts. Shayne Cherry and Michael Broussard have brought the title back to the 75th Ranger Regiment.

I am also very proud of Adam for doing a hell of a job coaching all of his teams. This is from the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer:

Waiting to greet the winning team was Sgt. 1st Class Adam Nash, who a year ago placed third in this competition, having teamed up with Staff Sgt. Colin Boley to win the Best Ranger title in 2004.
"You have to give a lot of the credit to Coach Nash," Broussard said. Nash has been coaching the 75th Ranger Regiment team, which fielded six entrants this year, for the past several months.
He paired Broussard together with Cherry and the move paid off in victory.

That was very nice of Broussard to say that, and I know Adam appreciates it greatly.

The 75th also had teams finish third, fourth and 10th.

Way to go guys, and thanks for bringing the title home.
