AWARDS:The Rangers are a rather unassuming unit and we believe our conduct speaks for itself. However, we do like to reward those showing outstanding service to the Company. Therefore we have instated the following:

The Ranger Bonnet:

Once the Prospect Ranger achieves basic SOP Equipment and Proficiency in marksmanship and bushcraft, the Ranger is entitled to wear the Ranger Bonnet. This wool Highland Bonnet was worn by many Ranger units during the American Revolution and is the MVCR Specific uniform item worn both at meetings and workshops and (optionally) in the field

Expert Marksmanship Award: For those showing outstanding ability in the area of marksmanship

Light Infantry Badge: For us, it is worn by all staff and line officers as well as being awarded to NCOs who show outstanding leadership ability
