    Rudder’s Rangers, one of the special units at TAMU’s Corps of Cadets, held its fall Assault on the Quad exercise this week.

    According to the TAMU Corps “A "Quad Assault" exercise, conducted by members of Rudder’s Rangers, a unit in the Corps of Cadets, was executed Monday, Sept. 5 at 6 p.m. along with members of the Army and Texas National Guard. The practical demonstration of light infantry and ranger tactics included the use of blank ammunition, simple pyrotechnics and military vehicles from the National Guard. The exercise demonstrated the Army’s capabilities while giving students an idea of what joining the Rudder’s Rangers would entail. Members of Rudder’s Rangers participated in the mock exercise with an opposition force, continuing a yearly event that honors the memory of Gen. James Earl Rudder.

    Our Fish described it in perhaps intemperately exuberant adjectives but the Fish was right, it is impressive to view. The links to the event and a video from, I believe, last year’s assault are below.

    Thanks Lawman. Was able to get a glimpse of my son in the video of last year's Quad Assault. There has been nothing harder in his life than earning that Rudder's Ranger pin at the end of his fish year. Gig 'em!
