Discovery Channel: Hell and Back, Special Ops Ranger

Nearly two years ago the Discovery Channel launched Surviving the Cut which featured an Episode  Covering the US Army Ranger School.  Now they will premier an hour long documentary giving a first look into the 75th Ranger Regiment's Assessment and Selection Program (RASP) at 9PM EST on Sunday night. We look forward to seeing the inside footage of RASP, which is an 8 week extreme physical test to determine mental toughness and capability under stress.
