The one-rope bridge
Task Force Ranger Challenge 2017 proved our Army ROTC cadets’ ability to handle themselves in another type of classroom — outdoors. They transported themselves and their equipment across a river using only a 150-foot rope, self-made harnesses, climbing-grade carabiners, soldier skills, leadership and teamwork. The nine-cadet and five-cadet teams placed first in the task force competitions. The teams took second and third in brigade-level contests featuring the best-performing Army ROTC programs in the Midwest.
