Re: Intro Afghan PL

Welcome.

My wife is a Saluki (or however you spell it). Best of luck with the packet. Hope no one higher up gets in the way.

Re: looking for guys from my RIP class, Nov 1990

The guy with the tattoo on his dick - it wasn't the 'tunnel rat' was it?

How many dick tattoos could there be in the army in the 90s?

Re: Re:

It's the stupidest rule there is. Getting hurt on AD and sticking it out 20+ are two totally different things. I think it's one of the biggest insults to military folks out there. I cannot say this enough. It is not unfair to "Military folks" it is a slap in the face of retirees. Sent by Droid Corr...

Re: Army Rangers vs. North Korean Spec Ops

I want to see Abraham Lincoln versus Mahatma Gandhi.

Lincoln has the reach and top-hat weapon, but Gandhi has wicked endurance and distracting flowing robes.

Re: Intro

If I can make one suggestion it is this: be persistent. Not 'pain in the ass' persistent, but persistent.

Re: Poser With A Tab Tatoo

Cut off his tattoo and give it to me. If he's as fat as you say he is I can use it as a flag.

Re: CPT. JONATHAN CARVER JR. - RANGER (1755-63)

There are a few companies that will etch it onto marble. I got the Ranger Creed on a nice piece of black marble in my office.

That really is a cool poem.

Re: "Concurrent receipt"

Those are the rules, unfortunately. Biggest bunch of bullshit there is. I ran the numbers after I broke my back. If I punched out after 4 years and got my VA disability versus staying in and getting retirement with a 'concurrent receipt' pay cut, the math didn't add up. It was better for me to get o...

Welcome. I'm just down the street in Brentwood. Although, I went to that better Big 10 school (Penn State). :D

Re: injury in training

I had 2 broken wrists prior to going in, including a plate and seven screws. Then I broke my back and still stayed in another 2.5 years.

My point - if you want it, it doesn't hurt.

Good luck.

Re: Four Winds Curse?

I don't know if the curse is true or not, but I had my first Ranger Burger about an hour after RS graduation. I didn't want to offend the fickle hand of fate. And I'll bet it made it's grand exit 10 minutes later? My digestive system was WAY screwed up for weeks. A few bites of anything and I'd be ...

Re: Calloused Achilles Tendon Area?

That area of my foot is one that always had/has a callous. However, it was always irritated and never built up like other areas. I used to have blisters form with callouses overtop. When the blister broke, it was raw skin. Rinse, repeat.

Do you get them from running shoes or boots?
