Joe Meglan was my Cadre Plt Sgt in Rip and my Cadre Plt Sgt in Pre-Ranger both. He always smoked my bag because I came from the same squad as he did. Later on, after I got my shit, he came back home to 1/75 to take over as 1st plt wpns sqd ldr, which is where he was when I left. I saw him a few mont...

If I know Boots, He still has some master plan he is working on - whether it's Amway, or something else. The only door to door Ranger salesman I ever knew.

Hey Vega, guess what "Boots" (Sgt Pierce) is doing now. Sgt Heil told me he is a prison guard out in AZ, somewhere. I just can't imagine Boots as a prison guard. He's too easy going.

What all do you want to know? Also, you may want to get with Vega. I'm pretty sure he was in 3rd sqd, and got out not long after I came in.

The winter classes still got two meals per day. I don't know how they did with you guys, but they would not let us space out our meals. Meaning, once we opened one up, we had to eat the whole thing - we couldn't save part of it for later when our minds were fucking us. I actually watched men eat the...

Oh, I see Ranger Bell was a "Class 5'er" too. Let me tell you, boys. You haven't ever been cold unless you've been in a Ranger School Class 4 or 5 in the mountains. You'll swear that God, himself, has forsaken you. Wouldn't you knowit, the South had a "blizzard" at the time I went through mountains....

I left for Pre-ranger on Jan. 16th, and came home mid to late April. I went straight through. Some guys will recylce a phase - some receycle all of them. I didn't really lose any weight to speak of until Mountains. Darby started breaking me down, but my body held up well until Mountains. Mountain ph...

I had a pretty tough time getting back to normal when I came out. I went in at 150lbs, and came out at 118lbs. I was just the opposite of Bell, where eating is concerned. I had a true, no shit eating disorder. I would gorge myself, but I could never feel full. I would have to stop eating and wait a ...

Sign on bonus? Jesus!

They offerred me $10,000 to sign a leg contract. I told them to keep their money and give me my Ranger contract (respectufully, of course).

A similar situation from my experience: My Pre-Ranger class. The day of the road march. They had us out on the PT field doing react to indirect fire drills for four+ hours that afternoon with full rucks, etc. Naturally, the biggest guy in the patrol was always killed first, and I spent the better pa...

The last verse verse of the first stanza of the Ranger Creed ends with OF MY RANGER REGIMENT for the REAL RANGERS (i.e., assigned to the 75th Ranger Regiment). While in Ranger School, the last verse is OF THE RANGERS, because there are a lot of students of Ranger School who have never and will never...

Case in point: I think there was a Spc4 from first Bat. that was killed on a training jump on Rock DZ, not long after they came back from Iraq the first time. If I remember right, another jumper stole his air, and he lost his lift capability. These type injuries / fatalities would be far more common...

Picture yourself in this scenario. You have gotten back into the service, and made it to Bat. Ranger Rendezvous is here, and you are about to take part in a jump that every Ranger that has ever made it will remember, their first Regimental Mass Attack jump into Ranger Rendezvous at Ft. Benning. This...
