Just wondering...

Ranger Quartermaster advertises a tee shirt billed as "Airborne Ranger Jump Master". For some reason, it has no artwork displayed. Since I are one and I have always been happy with RQ's stuff, I took a chance and ordered one. Kick ass! It is the same artwork as the "Airborne Ranger Infantry" shirt, ...

Question about the IOTV...

I tried this question in the elsewhere, and didn't get anywhere. Ranger Buddah suggested I try here, so: I have seen the quick release feature, and it looks pretty good. What concerns me is that I have seen lots of videos of the vest being activated, but I cannot find one that shows the vest being a...

Oh, no you di'ent...

When I have to listen to a fat out of shape LTC with a Tab who can no longer spell OPORD it pisses me off.
I can still spell OPROD!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Yeah, I know-
Just a little random browsing on my part. I haven't been here all that much in the past year.

I was just a little surprised to see an officer asking about officers re-enlisting, that's all.

You can't have an infantry command unless you have a Ranger Tab? Bullshit. GEN Dan K. McNeill, FORSCOM Commanding General, has commanded Airborne troops at company, battalion, brigade, division, and corps level. He does not have a Ranger Tab. I saw many platoon leaders at the 82d Airplane Gang who w...

Officers do not re-enlist.

Or re-officerate, for that matter.

5 and 2. Started with 6-87. I broke my ankle in City Week, faked my way through to the end of Mountain Phase. Got caught when I could not walk up a hill because my ankle kept dislocating on me. Tried to recycle, couldn't physically make it through the land nav course. Sent home to Bragg, started lob...

Damn, SGM-

I think we have met- I am currently an ops guy at First Army. I was at Fort Leavenworth for the 28th DIV WARFIGHTER Exercise. Some officers are punk-ass fools, but the same can be said of enlisted guys. I think the difference is that those NOT in Batt can return to their units with a sheepish grin, ...

I don't argue that, Bill. In fact, that was part of the answer set. Young hooahs are not retarded; they can see a rank shadow on a collar as well as anyone else. Because they are pros, "Sir" was a knee-jerk response to anything an officer ranger student said, even when it was the stupidest thing eve...

There is actually a simpler explanation...

No matter how dumb a new twoey-looie may seem, he IS at least 3-4 years older than your average Battboy going through. He was a senior in high school before the Battboys even got there. It does make a difference. The average 2LT is a fuck-up, but his biggest sin is normally that of enthusiasm. He tr...

Actually...

... I may hold the record for weight loss. When I went in, I weighed 210. When I came out, I weighed 158. Net weight loss: 52 lbs.

AND THE ANSWER IS...

I am pretty sure it was SFC John Twomey, Ranger Class 6-87. SFC Twomey had a long break in service before coming back in as an artilleryman in 319th FA. He turned 50 two weeks after graduating. Unfortunately, going through Hooah School took a toll on him. Within about two years, he was permanent SDN...
