Guess Who Went Viral at Best Ranger?

Haley Britzky is a reporter for the military web site Task & Purpose, and she happened to be at an event in Saturday’s Day Stakes rotations of Best Ranger Competition where Staff Sergeant McCain showed the meaning of the slogan “Improvise, Adapt, Overcome” and, at the same time, created a new motto: “You do you, baby”:

Haley’s tweet went viral in the military community, with nearly 3,000 likes and 600+ retweets, and the replies are “lit AF,” as the kids say:

At the heavy weapons Red Cloud Range event this afternoon, I happened to run into my son’s lieutenant colonel. When I introduced myself as Bob’s father, he said, “So you’re the original McCain,” and I said, “No, Bob is completely original,” to which he replied, “I 100% agree with that.”
