A special ride picked up Millersville University students today.

They are members of the Army ROTC.

They’re headed to a ranger competition at Fort Dix, New Jersey.

We’re told it will be a physical and mental agility test using warrior task and basic soldiers skills to see who is the best.

“The Army ROTC here at Millersville is not very well known. We’ve been here since 1974, so we are trying to highlight the Millersville Army ROTC and the Blue Mountain Battalion to show ‘hey look, we do have an Army ROTC by actually putting an aircraft here and putting an impression on the community.’ “

The Millersville students are competing with 23 different ROTC teams from across the nation.
