According to legend, the "Mangu-Dai" were the elite of Genghis Khan's army. These warriors were chosen for their ability to endure and win under harsh conditions.
Today, the term "Mangudai" denotes a leadership challenge that would make many Mangu-Dai cry.
Ranger reporter and photojournalist J.M. Simpson spent the last three days completing the Mangudai Challenge at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. Soldiers, Airmen and Coast Guardsmen were tested physically, mentally and emotionally during the grueling 58-hour event.
Look for Simpson's complete story in Thursday's Ranger newspaper.
