Caught this caption on AKO this morning:

Sgt. 1st Class Jose XXXXX and Staff Sgt. Thomas XXXXX, a team from the 6th Ranger Battalion, run between events during the 2010 Best Ranger competition at Fort Benning, Ga. The team placed 13th overall. Photo credit: Daren Reehl. (Photo by U.S. Army)

I'm assuming this is one of the training units, but it's phrased as though it falls along side 1/75, 2/75 and 3/75. I'm aware of the 6th Ranger Battalion that existed during WWII but that was disbanded 65 years ago...

Just curious if anyone can shed some light here.

It's the 6th RTB. 4th, 5th, 6th = RTB (Ranger School). They aren't part of the 75th.

Thanks! I figured that might be the case, but the wording of the caption kinda threw me. I never realized that Ranger School had as many battalions as the Regiment itself.
