The 75th Ranger Regiment is a highly specialized light-infantry unit, capable of deploying to anywhere on the globe on extremely short notice. A Ranger is highly-trained to accept this challenge, practicing survival techniques in a variety of environments as well as physical conditioning. This action figure depicts an Airborne Ranger geared up for a T-5 static line parachute drop in full combat load.
Recognizing that I volunteered as a Ranger, fully knowing the hazards of my chosen profession. I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor, and high "esprit de corps" of my Ranger Regiment.
Acknowledging the fact that a Ranger is a more elite soldier who arrives at the cutting edge of battle by land, sea, or air. I accept the fact that as a Ranger my country expects me to move farther, faster and fight harder than any other soldier.
Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be. One hundred percent and then some.
Gallantly will I show the world that I am a specially selected and well trained soldier. My courtesy to superior officers, my neatness of dress and care for equipment shall set the example for others to follow.
Energetically will I meet the enemies of my country. I shall defeat them on the field of battle for I am better trained and will fight with all my might. Surrender is not a Ranger word. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country.
Readily will I display the intestinal fortitude required to fight on to the Ranger objective and complete the mission, though I be the lone survivor.
Dragon's Tim Kelly was the first Dragon action figure I purchased which introduced me to their line of modern military figures. As my collection grew, I modified my original Ranger with new parts and gear.
We sleep safely at night because rough men stand ready to visit violence on those who would harm us.
