Re: My introduction into the Army Ranger world.

I hope I'm in my lane here... He's a liar and a quitter. I offered to help him train up, because I'm pursuing a spot in Regiment in the future, and I guess that was too much for him. He talked a big game, but after making me wait all morning to go rucking I got a "hey bro, turns out I don't want to ...

Re: Intro-Hammer9

Ranger Jim, I'm playing the waiting game now, HRC projects 6-18 week turnaround on the call to active duty packets. In the meantime, I'm continuing my regimen of PT and rucking. I have volunteered to teach every class I can during drill weekends to improve my technical and tactical proficiency. We h...

Re: Intro-Hammer9

Sound like your on a good track for prepping for Ranger School. While in the 2nd Ranger Battalion area check out the new memorial build by the Pointe du Hoc Foundation, it's pretty incredible. I noticed you're from Utah, I graduated from Olympus HS in the Holiday area of the Salt Lake Valley. Range...

Re: Intro-Hammer9

Rangerjd, My last record APFT I did 78 pu, 84 su, and 12:45. That's a 308 in the 27-31 age bracket, which I'm in (I'm 29.) I did a personal RPFT a week ago and got 78, 85, and 37:27 for the 5 mile. I did about 12 pull-ups after, the last 4 were pretty cruddy and probably would not count. I go ruckin...

Re: Intro-Hammer9

SITREP: NTC was a success, I got to coordinate with the Ranger TF on a couple of occasions (non lethal targeting) and I never cease to be impressed by those guys. It further solidifies my intent to pursue a spot in the Ranger Regiment. I have finished my Active Duty packet, and I will hear about tha...

Re: Intro-Hammer9

Jim invited me to post a SITREP, so I figured it would be wise to honor his request. I go to Airborne school in October and I should finish my CCC in December, if my school requests get approved judiciously. We have a supporting role in an NTC rotation shortly after that, after which I will submit m...

Intro-Hammer9

Good day, Rangers. I'm a long-time lurker, finally at a place in my career where I figured I should register and start asking questions. I'm currently a Civil Affairs team leader in 351 CACOM. I've been in the Reserve component since 2010. I made the mistake of being in the Reserves, I thought that ...
