Contents: pt. 1. Twenty-three two man ranger teams descend on Fort Benning, Georgia, for the start of a taxing three-day competition.

pt. 3. The final day of competition is here. After the conclusion of the 12-hour land navigation and night orienteering event, the remaining teams take on the sprawling 26-obstacle Darby Queen course. From there, it's time to make a splash in the water events, including the helocast and water confidence test. Finally, the teams put everything they have left into the two-mile buddy run.
