Re: Introduction - rosettaprone

My goal is a score of 600. Remind me not to ask you any more fitness questions since you may major in that... Kidding, awesome answer. Very thorough. Obviously you have plenty of time to work on fitness and ideally the Army will have figured out a decent train up program to get you even better once...

Re: Introduction- Avonte

Thanks for checking in, Avonte. The class should test some of your limits. For some it will be physical. Others mental... and some just both. Gotta keep the attitude you have and remember why you volunteered and earned your chance. Don't lose sight of that. Good plan for the weekend. Lay low, do som...

Re: Introduction - Robert

Rangers, Since my last update my braces have come off and I have started talking with recruiters. Tomorrow I head to MEPs for my physical screening and if all goes to plan I'll be swearing in on Thursday with an 11X Opt 40 contract. Thursday is tomorrow now! Looking forward to hearing back from you...

Re: Introduction - rosettaprone

Thank you, Ranger IntelToad. As far as commissioning goes, I have considered both of the options you mentioned (ROTC or OCS). However, I have weighed the pros and cons of both of the available paths (enlisted vs. officer) and have come to the conclusion that the role and responsibilities of the enl...

Re: Thoughts of a holdover

I’ve been at Pre-RASP since last Monday. I’m amazed by how many people are so ill-prepared for what’s to come. Many didn’t/don’t know the Ranger creed, Ranger history, Airborne Ranger in the Sky, etc. I also notice the guys who sandbag PT and don’t give it their best effort, more importantly the ca...

Re: Thoughts of a holdover

I think this is an important post you should keep up with during your time now at a new holdover in Pre-RASP. Don't have to divulge specifics of the course if you are not able to, but keep posting your thoughts. I hope it helps you drive on and conquer your challenges coming.

Re: Introduction - Tristan

Good on you for being active. Just know that the best way to improve APFT scores is to do more push ups / sit ups... Also, if you haven't, look into what the ACFT is. By the time you get in it is likely to be in place or real use in OSUT. Be cautious with remaining married based on what your recruit...

Re: SITREP- Avonte

Ranger Disinfertention we occasionally do climbing drills on the pull-up bars for PT, and after every chow we have to do 10 pull ups our SDS makes us Good start. We used to do pullups/chinups in the bathroom and used a towel over it since it was sharp... worked good enough I guess. Make sure it can...
