The journey to bold, rugged and Godly manhood is a challenging endeavor and not for the faint of heart. Forces determined to reduce our sons to weak, unprincipled and irrelevant automatons assail them from every side, and our parental efforts at every turn. Preparing our boys and equipping them with every possible tool (mental, physical and spiritual) is critical to their success. Participation in the American Rangers and striving to live by the Guiding Principles, Oath and Creed builds character, teaches leadership and encourages fitness so that when adversity and hardship confront them – our sons will be ready!
Mission Statement
The mission of the American Rangers is to guide boys in their quest to become virtuous, capable and courageous young men by providing principled training, encouragement and experience. Boys who strive to live by the Ranger Oath and Creed grow in mind, body and soul.


The American Rangers is a Roman Catholic organization. To have the Catholic Faith at the heart of each Troop, only Catholic men in good standing may start American Ranger Troops. Each Troop must have a letter of recommendation from a sponsoring Catholic priest. Each Troop is to have a Catholic priest or deacon as a Chaplain.

Official Prayer

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Life Skills

A Ranger will learn a variety of life skills while a member of the organization, including outdoor survival, first aid, basic automotive repair among many other things.
