The bonuses, however, apply only to Soldiers who enlisted without an Option 40 contract — Option 40 contracts guarantee a spot to the Ranger Assessment and Selection Process (RASP).

The 75th Ranger Regiment is comprised of five battalions:

  • 1st Ranger Battalion based in Hunter Army Airfield, Georgia
  • 2nd Ranger Battalion based in Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington
  • 3rd Ranger Battalion based in Fort Benning, Georgia
  • Special Troops Battalion (STB) based in Fort Benning, Georgia
  • Military Intelligence Battalion (MIB) based in Fort Benning, Georgia

Interesting, the 75th Ranger Regiment is also looking for Civil Affairs (38A) officers, among numerous other officer MOS. An unknown component of Army Spec Ops, Civil Affairs provides commanders with a critical bridge to the local population.
