‘INTO THE BREACH’
Ranger units have exemplified themselves in close combat from Roger’s Rangers to the Rangers of the 75th Ranger Regiment. The men of the 75th Ranger Regiment carry on this legacy as the nation’s premier forcible entry and raiding force, prosecuting targets in denied areas against a well-armed and determined enemy.
The painting portrays a Ranger Fire Team with their distinctive equipment, armed with a SCAR-H, M-4s and a Military Working Dog assaulting through the breach during a raid. A Ranger Sniper Team is in over-watch together with an AH-6 and MH-6 flown by members of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment.
The US called upon the 75th Ranger Regiment as one of the first units to respond in the War on Terror. On October 19, 2001, Rangers executed a low level airborne assault, seizing Objective Rhino, an airfield in Kandahar, Afghanistan. For over eleven years, a reinforced Battalion of the 75th Ranger Regiment has been actively engaged in combat operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.
This painting is dedicated to Rangers of all eras who have gone ‘Into the Breach’, especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
