This is sad news, although I know Pete had a long and difficult struggle. There must have been some kind of relief for him at the end given what he suffered, but that is of course overshadowed by the tremendous tragedy of a man who left us far too early in his life. My thoughts are with his daughter...

The ARNG has no ability to waive the SFAS requirement. That would have to come from USAJFKSWCS and I really don't think it would happen. But, if a person wants to join the SF Regiment, be it ARNG or active, then SFAS is not the biggest hurdle they are going to face - especially on the 18D track. In ...

Rangers vs. SF

DEPs, If "Rangers vs. SF" is going to be ANYWHERE in your post, then you need to execute a prompt about face and march your ass back to the point where your train of thought fell off the tracks. If you're even thinking like that you're telegraphing to all of us here that you are focusing on the 500M...

No you cannot serve with one kidney, at you shouldn't be permitted to. Your kidneys may not bother you in your life right now, but on your 5th night on patrol without sufficient food or rest, when your pushing protein way too large for your nephrons out in your urine because your blood is saturated ...

Most of your benefit from anti-inflammatories is going to be in pain relief. Your tibia and surrounding soft tissues are poorly perfused and I don't think you'd get a good localized anti-inflammatory effect there. But if it helps with your discomfort then fine, just don't let that mask the discomfor...

Yeah, confirmed this today. As a 68W you should not be performing surgical interventions available to the SOCM medic such as chest tubes, surgical crics, and cutdowns. This is to say nothing of the extent of the training in A&P, the PEPP/PALS blocks, ACLS, and the rest. In my class the 68Ws had a lo...

I will say that all Ranger medics complete both the regular 68w medic course and SOCM and there is really no comparison. I get asked a lot in 2nd Batt what the course is like by the 11Bs and the best way i can describe it is by saying that regular medics are comparable to infantry AIT in terms of l...

SOPC is for 18X'ers, but it is a program that was originally run by 19h Gp for all guard guys attending SFAS. The pass rate of guard guys was high during this program, which is why it was coopted for the xrays. So I believe it is now an option for guard guys and 18xrays. I went through it as prior s...

You absolutely need rest from all impact activities. As mentioned, swimming is excellent. Maybe a spinning class but I wouldn't do it if I had any discomfort. Make sure you're getting plenty of calcium in your diet, even if it means taking a supplement to help. You better do your rehab right. If it ...

Just go to MEPs and tell them the truth. They're going to send you for an eval with a doc and if your injuries are healed then he's going to give you a 1 on you PUHLES and its not going to matter. That's infinitely better than having to wonder all the way through recruit training if you're going to ...

I'm hoping it's a good fight, but I think Liddell is a much better fighter at this point than Rampage. I think he's going to get his first round KO. But I hope I'm wrong and it turns out to be a good brawl.
