  1. They induct Ranger HoF members at the Ranger Memorial on Ft Benning. On years that they have Ranger Rendezvous (usually odd years) that coincide with Regimental Change of Command they assemble the Regiment (haven’t had the whole Regiment since 9/11, hopefully that’ll change this year). During the induction ceremony you get to see and meet the living awardees.

    It’s like walking among giants.
