Re: Introduction - Stephen

is your one true hook up recruiter still there, at that office? if you wait for someone to hand you something... it may never come. Ranger KW Driver, I don't know exactly what you mean by my "one true" recruiter. I think that the recruiter I mentioned above will be doing most of the work with me, a...

Re: Preparation for RASP

packing... keep things tight so they don't shift as you move around. inertia will put you on your ass depending on where you're walking. balance your load laterally so that your GC is over your spine as best you can. try to put your heaviest items, and longitudinal (vertical) CG between your shoulde...

Re: Preparation for RASP

don't run in boots. your knees and back with thank you in a few (maybe one) decade. just don't. once you're in, you'll learn when and how to shuffle. break in your boots before you start carrying any weight. ramp up distance and weight gradually. you don't ever need to train past 10 miles/35-45 poun...

Re: Option 40 13F...is this the way for me?

Welcome to the site. Being an FO in Ranger Regiment in my opinion would be pretty cool. They regularly go TDY(travel) to places across the country to practice dropping bombs from aircraft, calling in artillery, etc. They’re also usually the first ones to arrive when there is a casualty so they can ...

Re: Introduction - Back Again

I don’t even know if I’ve got discord still, but it damn sure won’t be with that login.

Maybe next time I’m drinking.
