The USMRA Scholarship Committee wishes to thank the membership for the
honor of having served in this capacity. We have once again had the
opportunity to see first hand some outstanding young adults who have
distinguished themselves by their pursuit of excellence and their
willingness to serve their fellows. We also witnessed the tremendous
comradeship and generosity of so many Rangers. Because of them, USMRA is
able to award these scholarships. Indeed, Rangers Lead the Way!
