I came home for a number of different reasons. 1. At the time, I was almost twenty-six years old, was still single, no kids, no college degree, etc. I wanted to move on and accomplish other goals that I had for my life. 2. A damn woman. I had met a woman from back home, and it was getting serious. L...

I stayed in for one reason, and one reason only: THERE AIN'T NOTHING WORSE THAN A DAMN QUITTER. I didn't become a Ranger for the money. I didn't become a Ranger because they looked cool in all the literature the recruiters show you. I became a Ranger because I wanted to deal some fucking death. I di...

Let's put it this way, when I was a cherry me and a buddy couldn't believe how long our days were, so we sat down in the wee hours one morning and figured up how much we made per hour - based on our pay rate and the average hours per week we were"on the clock". Do I have any takers on what our hourl...

Unless it has been changed, there are two, and only two justifiable reasons to stop running during PT, according to written Batallion SOP. 1. If you have the shits, you can stop to shit. But if you stop, you must shit 5 lbs of shit (subject to being weighed!). If you don't think you are about to shi...

You're damn right you better pay heed. I was alwasy a weak runner. My personal best EVER timed two mile run was a 13 flat. That meets the standard to be in Bat., but it sucks by Ranger Standards. My life was rough because of my slow run times, but over time, the men in my squad came to respect me be...

I don't know how Nate and B Co feels, but in Aco in the late 90's, Wpns Plt was the place to be. Squared away PL. Squared away PSG. More comraderie than the line platoons. Hell, we went drinking on the weekends in platoon sized elements. Just one big happy family, AND we had a well earned reputation...

When I was in, 1/75 brought in the Gracie brothers for a two week seminar on their Brazillian Jujitsu. We learned a few cool techniques, but that is about as far as it went. Personally, I think the idea of easily breaking a man's arm, or whatever, is as cool as the next guy. I just don't like the id...

Leatherneck pinned it on this one. If you make through boot. If you make it through AIT. If you make it through Jump School. If you make it through RIP. If you don't get peered out and the end of RIP. And if you actually make it and survive for any period of time in Bat., you will look back and thin...

Russ is a good guy. He was in 1/75, C Co I think. He blew out his knee on a jump, and got a medical. Then he became a military photographer. There I was, no shit. We were doing a dog and pony show for the Vietnam 101st vets, and my spotter and I were preparing our hide location for the exhibition ju...

You can do it, if your heart is into it. In my class, we had an older guy that came from Korea. He already had 15 yrs in service, and was an E-7. I think he was something like 40 - 42 years old. Hell, as far as stupid school goes, he may as well have been 80. It got tough on him though. Winter in Mo...

I soon realized that left wing, communist, cess pool colleges were no place for me. (Just a bunch of Goddamn lazy, punk, kids who do nothing but talk.

The most reliable and most commonly used method of transportation for any Ranger is a little jewel called bi-pedal motion.

There I was ..... no shit. The ditch and donne (spelling?) save both my life and my Tm Ldrs life one day on a river crossing. He was the rope man, and I was the scout swimmer.

You might get away with it in RIP, but not in stupid school. They lay you out the first day, and if it ain't on the packing list, it don't go with you.
