Thank You
I purchased a Ranger RB190 from Cabelas in Garner NC. I am looking forward to spending a lot of time on the water with my family. Thank you for supporting us military personnel at Ranger Boats.

Operation Troop Salute
First off I love my 188 and Yamaha, but I wanted to thank you for honoring me as a veteran. Enjoyed doing business with my dealer and Ranger. Thanks again. Will suggest Ranger to all my fishing buddys.

My Ranger
Just got off my 4th Deployment and purchased a 492VS Ranger, always dreamed of having a Ranger to fish tournaments when I retire from the military. Seems like the dream is getting closer.

Dream Rig
TSgt Riffe here and I wanted to say Thank you Dawsons Boat Center on Lake Guntersville! ...New Z518 and it's my dream boat. Thank you Ranger for supporting the military and all of its Vets!!!

New Ranger RP-190
Returned from the Persian Gulf (8th deployment) where I had researched boats in my spare time. Received my new RP-190 last week and the first day I caught 3 slot Reds and 2 slot Spotted Trout. The boat rides great and handles the waves great! Thanks for the military appreciation program Ranger!!

11TH Ranger
As a Vietnam era vet, we were not received very well from our fellow Americans upon our return. For Ranger and Forrest to remember us at this time is a honor in itself. I just picked up my 11th Ranger that stretch all the way back to 1973 for my first. The 2016 is a beautiful sunfire and white Z521c with a 250 Evinrude with all the toys. I believe it is the best one to date. Thank you Ranger for the safety you build in your boats and for the recognition of our armed services.

Ranger RT188C
I am preparing for my forth deployment in about a week. My wife and I have decided to purchase the RT188C with the Mossy Oak Breakup. We love the color and setup it offers. We plan on many hours of quality time when I return on our new fishing boat.

Service to USA
We stand between the worst the world has to offer to protect the best this world has to offer and for little pay and less recognition. We sacrafice our lives and our bodies. Some of us come home broken and some return under a flag but we all would serve again given the opportunity. Our way of life is not free and freedom has its costs and they are paid for by the blood of those of courageous enough to serve.

One day I'll own a Ranger and will enjoy my time in the best quiet places the USA has to offer.

My New Ranger RT178
I would like to thank the Ranger organization for the support they show for Veterans. I am a retired Navy Vet and have just purchased my first Ranger boat. I have owned other boats before, but this new aluminum series is put together better than any other on the market. My hat's off to Ranger.

Thank you Ranger and Collins Inc. Ranger Boat sales in Smithfield, NC. Waiting to take delivery of my new Z520C Dream Boat. I traded my 2004 Ranger 519VX which I enjoyed for 11 years. It was the greatest boat with all the comfortable features and the Yamaha VMAX 200HP engine which ran just as strong when traded as it did when I bought it new. I have many great memories running the boat without any major problems. Thank you Ranger for the bonus benefits on my new Z520C; $6200 dollars worth of upgrades; boat cover, 2 $300 life jackets, 2 power poles valued at $4400, and a $200 gift card. Plus I received the Troop Appreciation Engine HP rebate and clothing incentive. I also received the extended Yamaha warranty as another inventive. Dream boat and dream deal of a lifetime. Thank you Ranger Boats for recognizing this 34 year active duty Navy guy, and for taking care of all the military boat buyers. You and I know the sacrifices of being away from family, and all the hard work that goes into a military job and career. Keep building the best fishing boats in the world. Thanks again to Collins Inc. and Ranger Boats.

I am waiting on delivery of a new 2016 Z518c Intracostal - I as well as a lot of others here that have posted are former military. A shout out to all my brothers. And much love to my fellow military family that also suffer from PTSD/TBI.

With my blood being red, white and blue it was only natural that I went with a Ranger.

The serenity of being on the water gives me back my freedom. Hooah 4th ID!!

Thanks For The Support
Just purchased my first Ranger boat... always wanted one. I can't express my gratitude enough for the support this company has offered to vets, it makes the purchase that much more enjoyable knowing they also appreciate our military and our freedom. Thank you for the support, you don't have to give it, but you do it anyway and it means a lot!
