SITREP - ROBERT

Rangers, I am currently at the MEPs hotel and will be flying out to Fort Benning tomorrow morning. I think back to when I first joined this website and look back on the people I've encountered, the stories I've read, the lessons I've learned and how much I have grown as an individual since committin...

Pushups - 80 Sit Ups - 81 Pull Ups - 15 2 mile - 12:43 314/300 I feel as though if I better pace myself and work more on my muscle endurance I will be in the 90’s for both situps and pushups. Additionally, I hope to further improve my run ...

Re: Introduction - Robert

Rangers, Yesterday I returned from MEPs. I signed an 11X contract but was still deemed 'medically unfit' to sign an Option 4 as well as an Option 40 contract due to a waiver for esotropia and hypertropia in my right eye, aka cross eyed. The condition is minor, however, enough for it to be picked up ...

Re: Introduction - Robert

Rangers, I have heard back from my recruiters and will be headed back to MEPs December 10th for my consultation. Since my first visit to MEPs I reached out to the 75th Ranger Regiment recruiting and asked them a few questions regarding my situation. Fortunately since then I have heard back from them...

Re: Introduction - Robert

Rangers, Since my last update I have not heard anything from my recruiters. I called up the recruiting station and they had not heard anything from MEPs either. I hope to possibly hear back from the office at the soonest possibly early December, but most likely I will be headed back to MEPs come Jan...

Re: Introduction - Robert

Rangers, My MEP's visit went great up until the last part. I passed everything but the vision test. I scored a 20/15 in my left eye and a 20/50 in my right eye which the proctor of the exam wrote down as non correctable. This is problem because I needed 20/40 in order to pass the airborne physical. ...

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.

Re: Introduction - Robert

Ranger Disinfertention, I plan on talking with my recruiter once I get my braces off, maybe a little beforehand so that we can give them a heads up when we'll be dropping in. I'll hopefully be using the same recruiter but if things do not go so well I won't hesitate to jump ship to the town over and...

Re: Introduction - Robert

Rangers, Summer has come and gone so fast. There was a lot of things I wanted to do this summer some of which I accomplished and others I wish I had more time to pursue. I'm excited to inform you all that my braces will be coming off October 11th. I'll be contracted as soon as I possibly can and the...

Re: Introduction - Robert

Rangers, This update is long overdue on the site. A lot has changed in the last year since my previous update. Currently my brother and I are waiting until the new fiscal year in October to get contracted. Our braces will be coming off in October or sooner, unfortunately the exact time is not set in...

Re: Introduction - Robert

Roger Ranger Disinfertention, we will stick to our guns. Unfortunatly the Recruiter contacted my brother yesterday and informed us that they will be in Dover today so FST is cancelled. We are both looking forward to next weeks FST! Talking to the Recruiter was a big step towards achieving a life lon...

Re: Introduction - Robert

Rangers, Today my brother and I visited the local Recruiting Office and talked to the Recruiters. The one particular Recruiter who will be working with us seemed motivated to help us get our contracts, however the other Recruiters were not very helpful going as far as saying "Wanting one specific co...
