The 75th Ranger Regiment has scheduled the 2011 Ranger Rendezvous for July 25 to 28, 2011 at Fort Benning.
Ranger Rendezvous is a unit tradition to bring the entire Regiment together for the 75th Ranger Regimental change of command. The days leading up to the ceremony are filled with Ranger demonstrations and events.
Col. Michael E. Kurilla will relinquish command to Col. Mark Odom on the National Infantry Museum Soldier’s Field. Col. Odom was previously the 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment Battalion Commander.
Traditional events include the mass tactical airborne operation where 2,000 Rangers conduct an airborne assault onto Fryar Drop Zone. Other traditional events include Regimental physical training, sporting competitions, boxing and combatives, a no-host barbecue with entertainment, as well as two ceremonies honoring our Ranger veterans.
A more detailed schedule of events will be provided in early 2011. For more information, contact the Regimental Public Affairs Office at 706-545-4260 or email at 75rgrpao@SOC.MIL.
