Maroon Minute recognizes Bear Battalion

Tuesday, February 14, 2017

Missouri State University’s Bear Battalion claimed first place at the annual Taskforce Leonard Wood ROTC “Ranger Challenge” last fall.

The competition was spread over a 15-mile course through rough terrain and included several physical, technical and knowledge-based tests. Those tests included an obstacle course, land navigation with a map and compass, weapons assembly and disassembly, survival skills, and military knowledge and doctrine.

The purpose of the competition is to provide cadets with a challenging team-building event.

These team-building and personal growth objectives directly relate to the core purposes of Missouri State’s ROTC program, which includes teaching young men and women to be leaders and solve complex problems.

A Military Friendly® School, Missouri State’s Bear Battalion has developed leaders since 1952.
