  1. Our son will be attending Ranger School (class # 6-13) with a graduation date of June 21, 2013. What is the earliest time time he can leave Ft. Benning to travel to Atlanta Hartsfield Airport on June 21? When will he have to report back to Ft. Benning? Thank you.

    1. It is generally safe to ‘assume’ that you can depart shortly after noon, but Murphy’s Law may apply. As far as when and where he reports next – that will depend upon his individual travel orders and any leave he has arranged for. All the best!


  2. I am assuming that End Date = Graduation Date – is this correct? Also does every graduation include a Rangers In Action Demonstration? I would like for my entire family to see it.
    Thank you and Hooah

  3. My son will graduate with the #6-13 class June 21st. Does that mean graduation will be at Eglin or back at Fort Benning? I am trying to make travel plans for all of us to attend? Help?

    1. Graduation will be at Ft. Benning — You will want to be at Victory Pond before 10am to see the Rangers in Action demonstration prior to the graduation at 11:00.

  4. Thank you for the information about graduation. Just a couple questions I’m hoping for answers. Will a photo drivers license be enough ID., & is there a limit to the # of family/friends allowed to attend? Any type of reservations required? Thanks, Proud dad!

    1. Hi Jim, There is no limit to the number of attendees at the ceremony and you do not need reservations. As the driver you will need license, registration and proof of insurance. Also, photo ID for everyone with you. Enjoy!

  5. Congrates to all the men that have accepted the honor and project the fortitude of this time honored brotherhood may god keep them all safe and protect them as they put themselves in harms way for our freedom and the freedom of all . These men will encounter objects that will test there will and will push through they will live with the faces of there brothers and will carry on they will leave there mark on the lives of so many but only be known by few . My brothers I wish I could stand with you one more time and bring you all home safe with the reverence and honor you deserve you will stay in my prayers and be in my best wishes to watch as you all come home in the manner of an ARMY RANGER
